Engine No. 9 was one of a pioneering set of locomotives that used narrow-gauge rail to navigate the high and dangerous mountain terrain of Colorado. A true icon of railroad heritage, Engine No. 9, represents the life-blood that enabled Colorado mining communities to survive and thrive in the late 1800s and early 1900s. At that time, massive rotary snowplow machines with giant snow-blowing blades were used to clear snow from the railroad tracks. Today you can see Engine No. 9 on the original High Line track that came into Breckenridge from Boreas Pass and a restored rotary, one of only five known narrow-gauge rotaries still in existence.
