Interesting Outdoor view showing the Stone summit observation  station building on top of Pikes Peak at 14,147 feet elevation.     View of the railway,  people sitting waiting for the train and view of the passenger car coming up the hillside.


Interesting the person who took at trip at 2 am during the winter when it was 29 degree above zero owned this photo back in the day wrote in fountain pen on backside of the trip:


This is the summit of pikes peak.  This stone observation  building - the clog RR car

The whole of the crack can be seen and part of the engine.


I made this trip at 2 am to see the sun rise.  Price $5.00 a trip.  It was 29 degree above zero look a slide on the planks.
