Boreas Pass Railroad Day
Historic Sites Open to the Public! Join railroad enthusiasts to celebrate the important role railroad's played in Breckenridge's life. DSP&P arrive in Breck in the 1880's to service the mines and miners. The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance maintains the Highline Railroad Park, home to the impressive #9 Engine that pulled the last train over the Boreas in 1937, and the Rotary Snowplow that kept the tracks clear of snow so deep it could cover buildings. Don't miss the Sawmill Museum, a hands-on exhibit that illustrates the importance of lumber to the local mines. Check out Baker's Tank on Boreas Pass, the Highline Railroad Park Museum and playground.
