Denver, South Park & Pacific Historical Society volunteers built additional narrow gauge track on the Denver, South Park & Pacific RR right of way June 27, 2020 north of the Como Hotel, Como, CO.  Right of way at left led to Boreas Pass and Breckenridge, CO.  Track to the right led to Kenosha Pass and Denver, CO.

So, how soon will trains be running into Denver and Breckenridge? ;o)

Seriously, not being too knowledgeable on Colorado railroad history.  Where did the track at the bottom center lead?

Thanks
