Manitou Railroads

Presented by Manitou Springs Heritage Center at Manitou Springs Heritage Center

The Manitou Springs Heritage Center announces its August feature presentation “Manitou Railroads” by local railroad historian, Mel McFarland. Mr. McFarland has spent a lifetime researching, photographing and writing about the Colorado Midland Railway, as well as the many other railways that traverse Manitou Springs.  He is the author of “The Midland Route: Colorado Midland Guide and Data Book”, which is highly regarded as the authoritative source of information for the Colorado Midland Railway.  Also, see the Heritage Center’s spectacular exhibit, “Manitou Railroads” featuring the Pikes Peak Cog Railway’s 125th Anniversary exhibit, the Manitou Incline and the Red Mountain Incline.  Learn the story of how railways and inclines dominated the Manitou landscape and contributed to our town’s growth as a tourist attraction.
