Devil's Gate High Bridge. The centerpiece of the Georgetown Loop Railroad is the reconstructed, 300 ft. long, Devil's Gate High Bridge, spanning Clear Creek and the station access road. Trains bound for Silver Plume cross over this bridge just minutes after departing the Devil's Gate Station. The trains begin their journey by backing down to the end of track in the woods on the lower right side of the photo. After pausing for a minute or two, the train then heads upgrade, circling around behind me in a wide, 270 degree right turn, eventually ending up on the span you see in the photo. While there are no more cross-over loops like the one you see here on the remaining run to Silver Plume, the route is about as circuitous and indirect as the engineers could possibly make a run to a town that is just 2 miles distant. Take one run up this line, and you'll never again wonder why they call it "The Loop."
