Eagle River Mine – N
The Eagle River Mine was an operational “hard rock” mine in Colorado through the late 1960’s and as of 1999 was still standing next to the Eagle River at Gilman, Colorado (near Minturn). Rio Grande Railroad fans will recognize Minturn as the former “helper station” along the former DRG&W and then Southern Pacific Tennessee Pass Line (alias now “rail banked by it’s current owner, the Union Pacific). The Eagle River Mine kit includes most of the major structures of this large mining complex and is suitable for precious metal, zinc, lead, and coal mining operations. A full size scale floor plan is included with these instructions to assist in placing this structure on your model railway or display. N Scale model measures approximately 8″(L)x 4″(W)x 3″(H).
