This is an interesting historic site, and its fun to see the train pop out if you are there at the right time. You can look it up online and read about how it got here. It truly was an engineering marvel for its time.
If you are able, take the train up from Denver. Its goes through some gorgeous mountain scenery, and is an enjoyable trip. Check the schedule-it doesn't run all the time.

If you are out and about in Winter Park check out the Moffat Tunnel, we came upon it my accident while looking for somewhere to go, it was nice to see, we walked around for awhile and there were even some trains on the tracks when we got there. So it is a must see if you are visiting.

The Moffat Tunnel has a great story and is interesting to go up to the entrance and see. You can walk right up to it from The Village at Winter Park.

Wonderful ride up from Denver. The "hosts", conductors, everyone were incredibly . The moffet tunnel is the end of the line, and Ta da there you are in the middle of everything, snow, skiers, shops and restaurants.

Over the years, I have stopped here several times. This year, I actually knew there was a train coming. I had a very hard time accessing the west portal, not even sure if I was supposed to be where I was to photograph a train. I know I wasn't on railroad property, but wasn't sure if it was public property either (it use to be). Anyway, I saw what I wanted to see, photographed it and left quickly. Not many trains operate on this line daily, so catching something is a pot of gold for a traveler, especially for a train-buff.
