Pike's Peak Cog Railway

The Pike's Peak Cog Railway is the highest in North America, and services began in 1891. The trains run from the historic depot at the base of Pike's Peak, which is at an elevation of 6571 feet. The line goes along Ruxton Creek, in Englemann Canyon, before passing the Minnehaha Falls. Climbing all the while, the route passes through Deer Park. Shortly after this, Lake Moraine and Mount Almagre dominate the views before the trains reach the top, just over eight miles from the base.

Diesel traction was introduced to the railway in the late 1930s, and the coaches used today are designed to maximise the views.
