The Narrow Gauge Circle

Narrow Gauge Railroads
he "Around The Circle" tour began in Denver, Colorado where the traveler boarded the cars of the mighty Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. As the train made its way south, the traveler was treated to a stop in Colorado Springs. Colorado Springs was the home to many of the finest resorts and health spas in the Country at the time. The next destination was the southern Colorado town of Pueblo. At Pueblo the tourist had the option of traveling to Alamosa over two different routes. The first was over Veta Pass while the second was accomplished via Poncha Pass. At Alamosa, the tourist continued on to Chama, New Mexico via the thrilling Toltec Gorge. Much of this portion of the "Around the Circle" tour can be traveled today on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad.
