Gilpin Tram and Colorado Southern...

March 17, 2017 09:30PM
Hello all

It looks like i will be working on a digital restoration of the Gilpin Tram and would like to include rolling stock from the Colorado & Southern Blackhawk section as they shared a connetion to a yard at the Gilpin Engine house. If anyone has an idea of where to find good photos that show the car markings and Engine types used on that segment of the C&S, and also it would help a lot to know more if the Gilpin ore cars, and other freight were marked with anything more than a White or Black G and number. The three Shays were numberd on the cab and plates...with Gilpin on the tender section...so i am ok there we have them built already. the other stock I would like to get lettered up correctly and the C&S typical consists for the yard were freight and maybe an occasional connecting passneger run to feed the excursion cars on the Gilpin.

any info or link suggests very welcome. I am completed with the Rollins Pass segment of the Moffat and now heading back to the Cripple Creek mining district it looks like with a detour to Gilpin. thanks in advance for any suggestions. I am pretty good at research if i can know what to aim for. .... but help helps a lot.

Best to all in this new year of ours, wow 2017 is barreling along.

cheers
Chris
