Carbon, Colorado is a railroad location and does not represent an actual city in Colorado. At the switch for Carbon
there is a long lead to the Pierce Mining operation where a large coal mine is serviced by four stub tracks. This
mine supplies the coal for Galveston’s Island Power & Light, the power plant at Castle Rock’s meat packing
company, and it also supplies all of the coal consumed by the Castle Rock & Pacific Railroad. Carbon is located on
the grade between Castle Rock and Trinidad Colorado.
