The Midland Railroad depot at the western end of 10th Street as it must have looked on Saturday, April 15, 1905, before the Presidential Train came through. Well-decorated with flags and bunting and pulled by Engine #15, the train slowly approached the depot. It had been freshly painted white for this occasion. President Roosevelt, riding in the private car he called “Rocket,” one of the three Pennsylvanian Railroad special cars, yelled from the back of the train to the crowd that he would be back to Glenwood Springs soon.Frontier Museum
