The Aspen and Western Railway (A&W) was founded by the Colorado Coal & Iron Company in 1886. The objective of the A&W was to connect coal mines with two railroads in Carbondale - the Aspen Branch of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, and the main line of the Colorado Midland Railway. The 13 mile narrow gauge A&W line from Carbondale to the mines at Willow Park was completed in 1888, and operations began using leased D&RG equipment. The A&W was not a success. The owners soon realized that the coal deposits were insufficient for commercial mining, and that the operation was doomed to fail. In late 1892 the A&W was shuttered and sold to the Crystal River Railway, which later became the Crystal River Railroad.

Our sticker is inspired by the hand-drawn lettering on the 1892 Aspen & Western Railway annual pass.

Made by hand in Colorado. Cut in outline with no border and no background. Made with weather-proof 3M vinyl.
