The Alpine Pass is located on the continental divide in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. The narrow gauge Denver South Park & Pacific Railroad crossed the pass at over 3500m (11500ft) via a tunnel. It opened in 1882 and caused many problems. On the Pacific side were the supply facilities for the tunnel and the line including the boarding house for the supply of passengers, a telegraph office and a massive stone locomotive shed with internal turntable.
