ascending Pike's Peak, Colorado, by train

This is the highest point you can reach by rail in the USA --14,115 feet (4,302 metres). However, the day before we did it at the end of May there had been a fresh snowfall, so the train could only get to 11,500 ft, never mind.  See the earlier post and the official website

One of the original steam locos from 1891, now in the Colorado Railroad Museum.
