We are the South Park Rail Society , A 501c3 non profit based in Denver Colorado. We are establishing an operating railroad museum dedicated to the DSP&P/ C&S railroad, Several original structures remain from the original railroad including the 1880 stone roundhouse, the Como depot and the railroad hotel along with cabin and sheds built by the railroad. we are rebuilding the turntable and yard trackage. Our first season saw track built from the roundhouse to the depot, the turntable rebuilt and An operating steam locomotive running in Como. Our accomplishments for 2018 include ongoing repairs to the turntable pit, Proper dimensional lumber for turntable decking has been donated.  Thanks to the DSP&PHS  push poles have been delivered and a locking mechanism for  the turntable is under construction,. Additional electrical work has been accomplished in the roundhouse and the office area remodeled into an office and tool room . Shipping 3 additional railroad cars to the museum and building additional track in the rail yard . To accomplish these goals,  WE NEED YOUR HELP .. . we have an immediate need to raise $4000.00 to bring two Rider boxcars to Como before railroad day on August 18th, Our limited operation in July showed a definite need for additional Passenger capacity to accommodate the crowds that wanted to ride the new railroad. To accomplish this the SPRS has leased two Converted boxcars from the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, These cars are currently stored at the Georgetown Loop and need to be trucked to Como as soon as possible. The trucking quote is for $1500 each to move them.  Any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated
