Train's coming

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.

Go Back in Time

On July 1, 1894 the first train arrived in Cripple Creek. The Florence and Cripple Creek Railroad was one of the most successful although shortest lived railroads. Trains would continue. After all, it was the easiest way to get to the goldfields.
