The Railroads of Coors Field


In 1995, the Colorado Rockies played their first season in their new home in lower downtown Denver - Coors Field. To commemorate this event, we published this fine illustrated account of the new ballpark's railroad heritage. It occupies the former site of the city's first railroad station and what was for many years Union Pacific's passenger car yard. Today, Amtrak's California Zephyr passes behind the left field bleachers en route to and from Union Station.
This not only is a fascinating story of rail activity in the neighborhood over the years, but also tells the relationship of baseball with railroads and public transit since Denver's earliest days.
