In 1976, the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad started taking passengers on a journey back into gold rush history and into the scenic heart of the Rocky Mountains. With its lovingly restored steam locomotives and historic 1894 station house, the railroad is one of the Gold Camp’s favorite family attractions. Visitors will ride on a winding four-mile trip through the historic gold mining district. Trains leave the depot daily from mid-May through mid-October, taking visitors on a trip that includes stops at special points of interest and photo opportunities. The track heads south from Cripple Creek, crosses a reconstructed trestle and stops at a deserted mining town before returning.
