Leadville, Colorado & Southern Depot

-A A +A
1893, Union Pacific Railway. Northwest corner of E. 7th and Hazel sts.

Wide, bracketed eaves distinguish this one-story red brick depot with gabled dormers and corbeled chimneys. Built while the Union Pacific owned the DSP&P, the depot, along with the line, later became part of the Colorado & Southern and finally of the Burlington Northern. Burlington diesel standard-gauge locomotives, not the steam engine on exhibit outside the depot, are used for the Leadville, Colorado & Southern's 23-mile scenic excursions to Fremont Pass. The LC&S facilities also include an antique frame roundhouse with three stalls.
