1949 Trinidad Sand Spur

Photo courtesy Douglas County.

Note you can see the grade for the old 1892 alignment between the railroad grade and the newly constructed highway.  Great Northern loaded sand and gravel out of here for years. Visitors to this site today will see many fine homes built between the railroad grade and the river. There is also a highway department sand loadout next to the highway between the fill and cut that provides a commanding view of the area below.
