Denver Society of Model Railroaders
   www.denveroscaleclub.org

   The Denver Society of Model Railroaders is an organization dedicated to the accurate construction and realistic operation of model trains in 1:48 scale. Our members own and operate the Colorado Midland Railway, a true 1:48 scale standard gauge and narrow gauge model railroad. The CMR design found its origins in the prototype Colorado Midland Railway that traversed Colorado from Colorado Springs to Grand Junction and interchanged with the legendary Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Today's Colorado Midland Railway is a dynamic model railroad experience that is focused o­n America's western railroads. Model trains and operations reflect the railroads of Colorado's past, present, and future.

Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR Inc.
  
www.cumbrestoltec.org
   Hidden away in a little-known corner of the southern Rocky Mountains on the border of New Mexico and Colorado is a precious historic artifact of the American West that time forgot.
   Built in 1880 and little changed since, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is the finest and most spectacular example of steam era mountain railroading in North America. Its equipment, structures and vast landscape exist today as if frozen in the first half of the twentieth century.

Leadville, Colorado & Southern
   www.leadville-train.com

   The Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad is located at 11,000 feet above sea level in Leadville in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. This scenic train trip provides 2 and 1/2 hours of sightseeing, relaxation and a little glimpse back in history. The train travels another 1,000 feet above the headwaters of the Arkansas River Valley. You will travel through pine forests, aspen groves and view high alpine meadows sprinkled with an array of colorful wildflowers in mid summer. Bring your camera to try to capture a picture of an eagle. Children have the chance to meet the engineer.

Railway & Locomotive Historical Society (R&LHS)
