    This Railroad is what call Rail Bank, The line still there just not use, it run from Pueblo, Co -Grand Junction, Co.
    I went this way on US 24 because I had a 14' higher trl so I couldn't go thru the Eisenhower tunnel and US 6 over Loveland Pass was close due to a Slide.

      Janet that is a Portal to the Railroad tunnel not a bridge, I know it good pass by some as a bridge at 1st glance,
      Colorado is famous to all of it railroads past & present standard + narrow gauge with grades & tunnels & bridges.
      This line here was use even up to the days that the Union Pacic took over and use it but the $$$ cost to operatethis very steep grade was too high to maintain, But being Railbank it may come back to life even thought it very doubtful.
