Explore Abandoned Historic Colorado Train Yard + Huge Structures
It can be truly mind-blowing to learn about places in Colorado that were once thriving but have been left to rot. Naturally, you should never visit places like this in person for safety reasons as well as legal reasons, but if you keep scrolling you'll no doubt find your mind blown at a historic Colorado railyard that has been totally abandoned.
Colorado's Abandoned Railyard
The railyard is known as The Burnham Yard and is located in the Denver area. The property has quite a history as it first opened for business back in 1871 which actually predates Colorado even being a state.
The property was purchased just a couple of years ago and some of it will likely be demolished to accommodate construction on I-25. However, only 17 of the 58 acres that make up the railyard have been allocated for this use.
The railyard was originally run by Denver and Rio Grande Railroad but was purchased by Union Pacific who owned it until closing up shop back in 2016.
The property is filled with numerous massive structures that have been sitting around collecting dust and graffiti for the better part of a decade and while there are only a few railcars left behind, much of the equipment is still sitting around.
Again, it's important that you refrain from checking out the historic abandoned railyard yourself, but you can take a virtual tour below:
