Transportation Company - Colorado & Wyoming - Railroad



Company History: The Colorado & Wyoming was built in three separate, disconnected segments between 1899 and 1901. The Southern Division ran from Jansen (near Trinidad,) Colorado 27 miles to the New Elk Mine. The Middle Division was a 5 mile switching line in the Pueblo, Colorado area. The Northern Division ran from Sunrise to Guernsey, Wyoming.

For much of its history, the C&W was owned by United States Steel. In later years, the line (and presumably the mill, and mines they served) was sold to CF&I Steel (formerly Colorado Fuel & Iron.) In recent years, the properties were sold to Oregon Steel Mills. You've probably seen Oregon Steel Mills bright blue mill gondolas with CW reporting marks - those are Colorado & Wyoming cars.

Brief History:
The U.S. is a country of 50 states covering a vast swath of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. Major Atlantic Coast cities are New York, a global finance and culture center, and capital Washington, DC. Midwestern metropolis Chicago is known for influential architecture and on the west coast, Los Angeles' Hollywood is famed for filmmaking.
