Old No. 60
Colorado and Southern Steam Locomotive Number 60 spends a well-deserved retirement in Harold A. Anderson Park, Idaho Springs, Colorado. The class B-4C locomotive was built by the Rhode Island Locomotive Works in 1886. This engine started service with the Union Pacific narrow gauge Utah and Northern Railroad as No. 263.

In 1890, the Union Pacific transferred No. 263 to its Denver, Leadville, and Gunnison narrow gauge Railroad. No 263 became No. 60 when the Colorado and Southern acquired all of Union Pacific’s Colorado narrow gauge lines.

Ghosts of the Victorian Era?
Although the attractive young lady in the foreground may appear to be a Victorian Ghost, she is actually Tames Alan of Living History Lectures.

“Tames Alan is an actress, historian, and fashion history teacher who has combined her skills to create an educational program . . . she presents a look into the clothing and lifestyle of a Victorian woman during the mid-1850s through the early 1860s.” (From her website)

Coincidently, Tames had a great-grandfather who was a shipping clerk on one of Colorado’s early Steam Railroads.

The other ghostly images are actual Victorian women extracted from a vintage snapshot (1898-1900.) Used with permission; 'Victorian Life on The Isle of Wight'
