  • Colorado Midland (Cafky)

In 1921, the Colorado Midland Railway went out of business and, at the time, constituted one of the largest business enterprises in the State of Colorado. It had less than 350 miles of track when it was abandoned, and only 63 locomotives remained on its roster. By rights this railway company should have been long forgotten, yet the opposite has occurred. Thanks to its incredible career, the spectacular Rocky Mountain topography it traversed, the very great difficulties of operation, and because it represented the largest abandonment then recorded in American railroad history.
