Set in the 1930s during the Colorado and Southern era, Clear Creek Narrow Gauge is a three-foot gauge line running from Golden to Silver Plume, Colorado. Complete with coal-fired and oil-fired versions of the B4D locomotive, plus period-appropriate passenger and freight rolling stock, and sections of dual-gauge track, Clear Creek Narrow Gauge perfectly captures this golden era of Western railroading.
Starting around 15 miles west of Denver at Golden, the line heads west through Clear Creek Canyon until it splits at Forks Creek, where there is a loco depot. The section from Golden is dual-gauge as far as Crusher, where it reverts to three-foot gauge. The branch to the mining towns of Black Hawk and Central City goes off to the north and the mainline continues west.
On the branch, the line has a double ‘switch back’ to gain elevation between Black Hawk and Central City. The mainline passes through Idaho Springs about eight miles west of Forks Creek, where there are many rail served mines. West of Idaho Springs, the line continues to follow Clear Creek to Georgetown. At Georgetown the steep ascent on 3.5% grades starts to Silver Plume around the famous Georgetown Loop where the line does a loop over the top of itself and a double horseshoe before arriving at Silver Plume.
The line was closed in the early 1940s but the Georgetown Loop has since reopened as a tourist railway between Georgetown and Silver Plume.
Along the route there are numerous bridges, passes and gradients of 1-in-25 or steeper, making Clear Creek Narrow Gauge an involving driving experience. The route is not signalled in the conventional sense, as in real life, train movements were controlled via a train order system using written order slips.
