Bull Hill Station
The Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad is a fun train ride for the entire family. The train
operates from the old Bull Hill depot that was moved from Anaconda to
Cripple Creek many years
ago. It is now located next to the old Midland Terminal Depot, which houses the District Museum. The
train departs about every hour and takes about 45 minutes for the four mile round-trip between Cripple
Creek, Colorado and the remnants of the old gold camp of Anaconda.

The train is an old steam locomotive with a couple of passenger cars. When we went on the
train trip
one of the cars was enclosed and the other was open air with a roof. This is a narrated train tour that
takes you through Poverty Gulch, where gold was first found by Bob Womack back in 1890. The Train
ride takes you by some great mountain scenery and past many of the old mine tailings, mines, and old
mining buildings and cabins in the area.

Below are some pictures of our train ride from Cripple Creek to the ghost town of Anaconda in June of
2010. Enjoy!
