Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad
This page contains a listing
of books, magazine articles, and web links that describe the
Denver, South Park and Pacific Railway in considerable detail.
Some books are new enough to be puechased from the
publisher. Older books are still available in the
after-market at reasonable prices. Magazines such as Narrow
Gauge and Short Line Gazette, Trains,
and Model Railroader appear frequently in the after market.
Check Amazon and eBay.
Other pages on this site contain a rolling stock roster,
schedules, plans and drawings, and representative photos of
prototype and model locomotives and rolling stock.
For a change of pace, here's a song that includes a
reference to the
"Leadville narrow gauge".

raises funds for various restoration projects, my personal
favourite being DSP&P boxcar 608, the only existing example of a
DSP&P freight car.
South Park Rail Society is a
non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration of the Como
Roundhouse and yard area, as well as providing a steam-powered
excursion train ride at Como, CO. The locomotive used is a 1912
Baldwin 2-6-2, originally Klondile Mines Railroad #4 from Dawson
City, Yukon, Canada. Service began Sugust 2017. Track laying and
restoration of the roundhouse and turntable are ongoing
South Park City at Fairplay, CO is an outdoor museum
with 30+ restored structures and 60,000 artifacts from the gold
and silver mining era of the late 1800's.
The museum was
opened in 1959 after two years of preparation by the South
Park Historical Foundation.
The railway equipment is not originally DSP&P rolling stock.
