Como Colorado Roundhouse

The Como roundhouse was built in 1880s by the Denver South Park and Pacific Railroad which later became the Colorado and Southern. The town of Como and the Como Roundhouse was a busy place keeping the locomotives and rolling stock running that went to Alpine Tunnel over Boreas Pass and on to Breckenridge and Leadville Colorado. The last train through Como was in 1937. In the early 1980s the roundhouse became a Colorado National Historical site and there is a open house during Boreas Pass railroad days in August.Work being done now is done by volunteers with the Como Roundhouse historical society including laying track from the roundhouse to the Station and hotel. In 2017 Klondike Kate was purchased for live steam operations and now resides in the roundhouse.
