Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad Aug 2018
 
13:26
The next morning we headed west out of Colorado Springs and made the thrilling trek up 14,115-foot Pike's Peak. Our original Plan was to take the Manitou & Pike's Peak Cog Railway to the summit but since it's down for repairs this year we instead drove up the toll road which was nevertheless and dramatic and captivating experience. We then headed over to the old mining town of Cripple Creek for a ride on the 2-foot gauge Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad. The locomotive running that day was 0-4-0 #3 which was built by Porter in 1927. It was a fun and memorable ride as the scenery was very pleasant along the rather spooky-looking remains of the Anaconda Mining Company. We ran into a severe hail storm while out on the line and as luck would have it, we were in the open car! We literally had to jump from car to car in order to get proper shelter! It rained and hailed so much that we were able to see the first running water in the Cripple Creek in over 5 years! Once the ride was complete we made our way south to Canon City for the night. Enjoy!

Cripple Creek Colorado. United States 2005. The City of Cripple Creek is the Statutory City that is the county seat of Teller County, Colorado, United States.[6] The city population was 1189 at the 2010 United States Census. Cripple Creek is a former gold mining camp located 44 miles (71 km) southwest of Colorado Springs near the base of Pikes Peak. The Cripple Creek Historic District, which received National Historic Landmark status in 1961, includes part or all of city and includes surrounding area. The city is now a part of the Colorado Springs, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs. https://youtu.be/sqlDVf_0Ew4 Cripple creek colorado

Gold Belt Tour Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad
 
35:42
Ride along as we drive the "Gold Belt Line" Scenic Back Country Byway. This was once the roadbed of the famous "Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad" the "Gold Belt Line. Started in 1893, it was the first railroad to reach the new, booming mining district and as a result it earned substantial profits in its first years. However, by the early 1900s, the railroad was in serious financial trouble and merged with other railroads of the area under the Cripple Creek Central holding company. A final, large flash flood destroyed enough of the F&CC's right-of-way to convince its new owners it was financially unwise to spend money rebuilding it; and the line was abandoned and scrapped. Today Phantom Canyon Road, which incorporates much of the original grade for this route but has fewer crossings of the creek, is part of the Gold Belt Byway and is open to traffic for most of the summer months. The Canon City branch roughly follows County Road 123 from the Phantom Canyon Road to US 50 near Canon City. The graded gravel Phantom Canyon road is suitable for regular cars and has one remaining original railroad bridge to cross, plus two tunnels bored through solid rock.

Gold Camp Road, Cheyenne Canon, High Drive, Colorado Springs
 
15:07
This video compresses a 45-minute drive into a 15-minute spin through the scenery of North Cheyenne Canon in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Gold Camp Road. The first part of the video features Gold Camp Road. Gold Camp Road is now what was once The Short Line Railroad bed that stretched from Cripple Creek to Colorado Springs. Gold was brought down from the mining camp on The Short Line. The drive takes you through two railroad tunnels, multiple rock cuts and over old trestles with sheer drop offs into the canyon below. It winds for over 30 miles but due to tunnel cave ins along the route, you have to drive it in sections. This is the short section of the road that is accessible from town. You can drive all the way through to Cripple Creek if you begin on Old Stage Road (which criss-crossed the rail bed multiple times), and bypass the caved in tunnels. The second half of the video takes place on the High Drive, an old carriage road from the 1800s. Music: "Deep Breakfast" by Harry Roberts

For the full trail guide please visit: https://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/2935-lower-gold-camp-road Lower Gold Camp Road is a gorgeous route that travels through a beautiful area close to Colorado Springs that is rich in scenery and railroad history. As travelers drive through this beautiful area, make sure to stop and visit Helen Hunt Falls, located approximately 200 yards southeast of the southern trailhead. The area is the location of many scenic hiking and mountain biking trails. The route of Lower Gold Camp Road traverses 2.5 miles of what was once the location of the Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek District Railway Company's railroad line connecting the city of Colorado Springs with the gold fields of Cripple Creek and Victor. The rail line originally opened for steam locomotive service April 8, 1901 and was advertised as the shortest possible route to the gold fields. Soon after it was given the name "The Short Line." After World War I the Short Line was forced sold as a result of dwindling income from the passenger and freight service. It was purchased by a Colorado Springs capitalist named W.D.Corley who in 1926, opened the route as a toll road for vehicle travel and renamed it the Corley Mountain Highway. It was renamed The Gold Camp Road in 1939 and today is maintained for free, public travel by the US Forest Service, Teller County, and El Paso County.

A Day at the CC&V

Towards the end of the summer of 2011, I went up with my mother, my best friend Charles B. Grant, and his wife Mona, through Colorado Springs, and on up to Cripple Creek, to spend a day at the venerable 2ft Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge railroad, which was built over the right of way of the former Midland Terminal Railroad. Our train was headed by O&K Mallet #1, and stupidly, I did not get footage of it in operation. 0-4-0 #2 was well documented though, and Porter 0-4-0T #3 was offline at the depot, just ahead of the Bagnall restoration project. What I missed in video though, I got in photography: http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/First-glance-at-a-Porter-244366650?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=15 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/Offline-in-line-244366976?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=14 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/Glorius-No-1-244367724?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=13 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/Inside-and-Outside-244368223?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=12 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/No-1-Goldfield-244368567?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=11 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/Simmering-Sweetly-244368882?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=10 http://sampug394.deviantart.com/art/Ready-to-Roll-244369339?q=gallery%3Asampug394%2F155532&qo=9

Cripple Creek (3), Colorado, United States.
 
02:31
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005, gold mining camp For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.

I was VERY Suprised to look up on the old Colorado Midland Railroad ROW to see the tiny little steam trains of the Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Guage Railroad puffing into town, after the typical operating season had ended. We watch the train pull into the rip track, then head over to the depot to see the last train of the day (pulled by colorful locomotive 2) being readied for departure. Then away they go as the train passes the old Midland depot, and meets the other train we began with. Rate. Comment. Subscribe. ENJOY!!! Copyright The Origional Joint Line Railfan 2012.

Colorado 2013: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, Cripple Creek
 
16:39
Coming West to Colorado from Ottumwa, Iowa, arriving with her husband Henry, son Perry and daughter Elizabeth, the Gortner family first settled on North Nevada Street in Colorado. Springs. In the spring of 1891 Mollie's son Perry arrived in the Cripple Creek area employed as a surveyor assigned to map mining claims of this country's newest and overlooked frontier. With all news of the day focused on Cripple Creek's gold. Mollie loaded the family wagon with supplies and joined the next wagon train heading west up Ute Pass to visit her son. After a four day trip, Mollie was relieved to find Perry had completed construction of a half log half canvas field tent. Mollie wasted little time setting up housekeeping. In September of that year (1891), Perry while surveying upper Poverty Gulch, saw a huge herd of elk. Later he told Mollie of the herd so she headed out to see for herself. As she made her way up Poverty Gulch (three hundred yards past Cripple Creek's first gold strike - Bob Womack's Gold King Mine), winded Mollie decided to rest. Looking downward, as she caught her breath, Mollie noticed an interesting rock formation that winked back at her. Using a rock to break off a sample, she could hardly believe her eyes, the outcropping was pure gold laced in quartz. With her heart racing Mollie nonchalantly hid gold samples amongst her clothing, she had to be calm, and there were a number of prospectors in the area. Earlier that day Mollie had mingled with Bob Womack whom had overlooked her find for more than a dozen years prospecting an area he had nicknamed Poverty Gulch. By her determined act, Mollie Kathleen Gortner became the first woman in the Gold Camp to discover gold and strike a claim in her own name. This was clearly a bold move out of step with the times. Most men of the time, only named their horses, jack asses, and mines after their women, it was very uncommon to let a woman claim something of such value. Even after her mine was in production and when visited by the National Geological Survey, it's authors entered their report of the mine being "Discovered by Mr. M.C. Gortner" Mr. Gortner's name was Henry - - - Mollie's name was Mary Catherine Gortner. Mollie Kathleen Gortner Died in 1917. Henry would later die of a broken heart one short year later

Gold Camp Trail - Cripple Creek, Colorado
 
03:30
Exploring Cripple Creek Colorado after visiting this summer and taking the old steam train towards Victor. I saw some old mining structures and trails that I wanted to run on. So I drove up, dressed warm, took off running, and brought my camera to capture the journey. The trail is short (about 3 miles out and back) so I stopped by the old tunnel on highway 67 to run a bit more. There is a trailhead there called Horsethief and it goes to Pancake Rocks, or the other way, on Ring the Peaks Trail. I hit the turn off and hit the Ring the Peak Trail so I could get some sun in the valley for some photos. The weather was about 30 degrees. Not bad for December at 9500 ft elevation. There wasn't ice on any of the trails, just snow pack. I did wear traction over my shoes and didn't have any issues. Hope you enjoy this quick video I put together. I recommend checking out this great trail while visiting Cripple Creek.

This video captures 315 leaving Cumbres Pass on its way toward Antonito. Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad 315 was built in July 1895 by Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad. Named the Elkton, it was one of twelve Consolidations of the same class built for F&CC. It served the Florence & Cripple Creek for about 17 years. After the flood of 1912, the F&CC was financially unable to repair its roadway, so it was isolated at Canon City and then put into storage at Colorado Springs after the F&CC closed down in 1915. The Elkton and her sister engines sat derelict until 1917 when five of them were purchased by the D&RG. D&RG bought a sixth sister in 1920. The engines were loaded aboard D&RG flat cars and moved to the D&RG Burnham Shops in Denver, where they were repaired and upgraded to help meet the increased transportation demands of World War I. When the engines were put into service the F&CC #3 became D&RG #425. After the reorganization of D&RG and its merger with the Rio Grande Western in Utah in 1921, the railroad became the Denver & Rio Grande Western. The locomotive was called D&RGW #425 for a short time. Following the reorganization, many locomotives were renumbered to bring order to the locomotive classes, and D&RGW #425 became D&RGW #315 in January 1924. The 315 was first assigned to the Alamosa Division as a freight engine, where it was known to be in Chama around 1921-22 and in Durango around 1928. It was leased to the Rio Grande Southern for a period in 1926-1927. It was on the Gunnison Branch in 1929 and idle in Salida for a few years after the stock market crashed and again in the late 1930s during a recession. It served the Ouray Branch out of Montrose from 1933–1936 and again during 1939–1941. By the early 1940’s, as bigger locomotives came on the line, many of the smaller 2-8-0s were either being scrapped or used as yard engines. In March of 1941 the 315 was sidelined for a few months. It was taken to Alamosa for repairs during September and October, then sent to Durango to become a yard engine. At this time, it gained a rear light and had the road pilot replaced with a switchman platform. It was shopped again in 1945, receiving new flues and other major work. In 1948 the 315 was used in the Warner Brothers movie, Colorado Territory. When released in June 1949, it was the first of many films made by Hollywood in the Durango area, which saved the Silverton Branch line through tourism. The 315 remained in service in Durango until October 1949. Jackson Clark and the Durango Rotary Club saved the 315 from being scrapped by convincing the D&RGW to lease it to the city for display. The 315 was placed in Brookside Park on North Main Street in September 1950. When the D&RGs was getting ready to abandon the Durango to Alamosa line, the 315 was donated to the Chamber of Commerce in 1968. In 1986 the 315 was moved to Gateway Park, now Santa Rita Park, to be near the new visitors center. Since being displayed in a park the 315 received numerous coats of paint and lost a number of parts. In October 2000, at the request of the DRHS, the locomotive was granted a historic landmark designation by the City of Durango. In December 2000 the Chamber of Commerce transferred ownership to the City of Durango. The 315 normally operates on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad during that railroad's annual Railfest event held every August. In 2016, the 315 made a return to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad to participate in their Narrow Gauge Rendezvous event held on August 25. It remained on the C&TS to play a part in the festivities associated with 37th National Narrow Gauge Convention on September 4, 2017. http://www.drhs315.org/blog/drgw-315/

Crippled Creek - Could Have Been a Ghost Town (Cripple Creek, CO)
 
11:38
We recently visited Cripple Creek, CO. Bill's mother lived there before moving to Colorado Springs. The drive in was gorgeous, but if it weren't for the casinos, Cripple Creek would be another ghost town. Some amazing "old" architecture from the 1890's, built when the town was in the midst of a gold rush. Unfortunately everything besides the casinos was closed. Guess we will have to go back. Just don't eat the Green Chili Fries...

Cripple Creek & Victor Mining District

I headed out to the Cripple Creek, Colorado area today with the quadcopter. If you're ever in the area, you owe it to yourself to visit this special place. The Mollie Kathleen Mine is WELL worth the visit; a great way to experience mining in a realistic way (and I know, I have a degree in Mining Engineering and worked underground hardrock mines for part of my career.) If you're a gambler, you'll have fun here as well, but if you want to see some well preserved mining structures, head on over to Victor and hike the American Eagles Overlook trail. Thanks to my dad for the still photos. See more of his photos from around the world at russ-lewis.com.
