All Aboard the Narrow Gauge Railroad
Trains - Cripple Creek and Victor Colorado
The ride is four-miles winding through the historic gold mining district. The Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad opened for business on June 28th, 1967 by Dr. John M. Birmingham and it's been rolling ever since.
Trains leave every 40 minutes from mid-May through mid-October from our 1894 Depot and Gift Shop at the head of Bennett Avenue in Cripple Creek.
