The Boulder Industrial Lead
— User Comments —
this track is owned by RTD of Denver now
at Valmont used to be a railroad museum & even that got disbanded
Back in the 1870s the Denver and Boulder Valley built a railway that went in this curve to Boulder, and then Kansas Pacific took it, then Union Pacific. Since the 90s it hasn't been used west of I-25, because coal deliveries to the power plant in western Boulder were run by BN and then BNSF. In 2000 CDOT made UP take down the bridge over I-25, and RTD now owns it.
