“The equipment is tired and the railroad has run its useful self.” -New Owners
Pikes Peak’s iconic 126 year old Cog Railway might have already made its final trip up the mountain as the new owner is deliberating whether to continue operations. The new owner of the Broadmoor Hotel, is considering options but has already confirmed it will not reopen this spring.
The Broadmoor’s president and CEO Jack Damioli said, “we want to run a five-star, five diamond operation, including the railroad, we need to take a look at the next step”.
What do you think, antiquated and burdensome or charming and relevant. Let us know if you think the new owners should do everything they can to get it back operational or just let it be a chapter in Colorado mountain history.
