Steam Locomotive

Welcome to Colorado Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at old pictures from the Rocky Mountain State all week long. We start with this photochrom print from 1900. It shows an old Steam Locomotive. We are not told what part of Colorado the picture is from, but it looks a lot like some of the areas in the southern part. 


  1. To me, this looks like a Northbound train headed to Denver with what appears to be Pikes Peak in the background.

  2. I agree, it's pretty faded but that looks like Pikes Peak.

  3. nice 2-6-0 #346, but is this the same engine, rebuilt, with all new tin work? and the drivers do not look the same. Nope. Same number, but different.
