DENVER SOUTH PARK & PACIFIC Railroad--Rail from Alpine Tunnel
This section of rail was cut from rail taken from the fabled Alpine Tunnel of the Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad. Given the size, I suspect that it's 30 lb. rail although you cognoscenti rivet counters can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. It certainly looks like a cross section of used rail as one can note from the "pancaked" edge near the second "P" of DSP&P. I have no Certificate of Authenticity (COA). I cannot recall where I collected this over the last 30 years. Depicted above is the obverse, reverse, side view and a view of the rail compared to a standard sized coffee cup.
Thanks for looking.A special thanks if you offer a lot!
