Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad
DSP&P Track Routes, Yards, and Sidings

The route of any mountain railroad is bound to be circuitous and the DSP&P is no exception, and may be more convoluted than many others. From a modeler's point of view, that is what makes the DSP&P so interesting. From an operational point of view, yards and sidings play a vital role in the movement and maintenance of the fleet, in real lie as well as in model railroading.

Here are some of the more interesting track schematics that I could find. There were many variations over time, so these plans are merely snapshots of a specific time. Dates are included on some images, others are not so helpful.

 

 

DSP&P OVERALL ROUTE LAYOUT


Route map of the Denver, South Park and Pacific Railway from Denver to Gunnison with the important side trip to Leadville. The line straight west from Denver to Georgetown and Silver Plume was the Colorado Central Railway. Both railways ultimately became the Colorado and Southern, after a couple of corporate reorganizations.
