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 both soon-to-arrive 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 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.
