Engine Number 9 Arrives in Breckenridge Today

Engine Number 9, built in the 1880', originally served the Denver to Breckenridge route over Boreas Pass delivering mail and people,  arrived in Breckenridge today.  The fully restored steam engine will reside at the Rotary Snow Park at the south end of Breckenridge.  Pictured here is the engine still on the truck that hauled it in.  It will be placed on the tracks in the next few days.  Pretty exiciting to see an 1880's engine that once steamed through Breckenridge back in place.
