Georgetown Loop Railroad
Photograph - Digital Photography
The Georgetown Loop railroad connects the once thriving Colorado mining towns of Georgetown and Silver Plume which lie 2 miles apart in a steep, narrow mountain canyon. Completed in 1884, this narrow gauge rail line was considered an engineering marvel for its time. It covers 3.1 winding miles of track, 640 feet of elevation gain, and crosses 4 bridges over Clear Creek, including the massive Devil's Gate High Bridge shown here.
