Specific locations (each termini) would be nice. This is pretty vague

This is referenced, apparently by Tivis Wilkins in Colorado railroads: Chronological development. He describes the abandonment by saying, "Two sections of main line trackage between Portland and Canon City (sg) (Trackage rights were granted over D&RGW tracks from Adobe, near Portland, to Canon City.)"

"Rockvale Branch: ...Clelland south to D&RGW tracks (including both legs of a wye (sg) ...Rockvale to Kenwood (sg)"

Thanks for providing the specific date from the ICC filing! All I have are Wilkins' descriptions and the year it happened. If you have further questions, look me up at my site at http://www.corailroads.com
