DSP&P Trains in Real Life

Photos that show complete trains are difficult to take at the best of times. Back in the 1880's, the trains had to stop and pose for photographer/s, usually with some extremely interesting scenery in the background. With some cropping, contrast improvement, and enlargement, the sense of the actual train comes into view a little better.

Here are a few images that give an impression of South Park trains in action and the terrain they traveled through. I have chosen mostly those that portray the 1880 to 1889 era, before the railway changed its name to Denver, Leadville and Gunnison Railroad. Other pages on this website show closeups of individual locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars, and cabooses (waycars). See
