The Heritage Center at 110 Rosita Ave, Westcliffe, Colorado.
The last standing Single Stall Engine House in Colorado has been restored to its 1901 grandeur. This is the centerpiece of All Aboard Westcliffe’s historical Railroad District. A Heritage Center has been built and furnished to help tell the story of the railroad and its link to the mining and ranching heritage of this beautiful valley. A restoration workshop has been assembled and equipped to refurbish the rolling stock. The above-mentioned engine house has been refitted to serve in its new capacity as a small railroad museum to showcase an era of steam locomotive transportation that served a remote high mountain valley.
Some of the displays that you will see include a Google Earth Lansat collage of the old Texas Creek / Westcliffe branch of the D&RGRR that came into the valley in the early 1900's, a Timeline of the Custer County History and its relationship to the railroads, a working section car or speeder used by the section crew to maintain the rails, bridges and roadbed of this Westcliffe spur, and much more.
