“Born 1883, Died 1921 – The Colorado Midland Railway was the first standard gauge pike over and through the Colorado Rockies. It had less than 350 miles of track, never made any money yet has excited the imagination of railroad lovers as have few railroads in the nation – the section of railbed that you are about to walk over leads through fallen-in snowsheds, over trestles no longer in existence, to the lofty Hagerman Tunnel, 11,530 feet above sea level, which pierced the Rockies – in your walk you will see the almost forgotten site of a magnificent curved wooden trestle 1,084 feet long.”
