Midland Terminal...Florence & Cripple Creek....Of course, the short line up from the Spg's.....The Midland Terminal Depot still stands in both Cripple Creek, and Victor....Renewed mining activity has taken away much of the old dwellings, and foundations, etc....Regards....

Question of the day: Has anyone ever verified the existence of a blue cast AT&SF short globe? There is one listed in the 'railroadiana.org' globe survey, but I don't think that reporting was verified. Anyone have a photo of one? Ever seen one? And I'm talking about 'cobalt blue', not a signal green that LOOKS blue.
