Elkton Creek Smelter Kit – N
This ‘Elkton Creek Smelter’ kit was inspired by the Elkton Mine in the Cripple Creek Mining District of Colorado which first opened in1894. The Elkton Mine became one of the largest mines in the Cripple Creek area yielding more than $16 Million in gold before it permanently closed in 1956. At it’s peak Elkton had over 3,000 residents and was served by three railroads, the Florence & Cripple Creek, the Midland Terminal and the Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek as well as an electric street car line. Today, remnants of this once bustling town can still be found just north of Victor, Colorado. The completed display measures approximately 13¼”L x 8″W x 5½”H. See ‘Plan View’ for more detailed measurements. MTRAK Nn30 track system and vehicles as well as the other scenic detail parts shown are available separately.
