Final lecture series discusses historic trains
(Nov 15, 2012)
The final lecture in the free Westminster 2012 Historic Lecture Series will take place from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, at the Westminster Grange Hall, 3935 W. 73rd Ave. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m. for $10.
This series will discuss the C & S Railroad and the Interurban.
The C & S Railroad, now part of Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad system, operates trains from El Paso, Texas into Montana.
The Interurban used some of the same C & S right-of-way as part of the Kite Route that served Boulder.
Both trains also stopped in Semper (92nd and Pierce) and used the rail station across the street from the Bowles House on 72nd Avenue.
Come and learn more about these two important segments of Westminster History.
