Launched in July of this year, the Colorado Railroads mobile app from Trains Magazine complements the special Colorado Railroads issue and 1-hour DVD released by the periodical this past Spring. Drawing from the content of both the magazine and DVD, the free app offers digital access to railroad action in the Mile-High State.
The Colorado Railroads app lists more than 260 railroad-specific locations in the state; from mainline to tourist tracks, from Amtrak stations to railroad-themed restaurants. For the history buff, the app lists every current steam locomotive (more than 80) in Colorado. The locations are also provided on a state map with links to their website & phone number. The app lets users filter searches by such categories as “Attraction Type” and “Distance”.
The Colorado Railroads mobile app is available via the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, or via Google Play for Android – further info can be found at the official Trains Magazine link. This writer has the app on my Smartphone and I have enjoyed exploring the features and information. It will be a handy app next month, when traveling to the annual convention of the National Association of Railroad Passengers, to be held in Denver, Colorado, from October 14th to 16th.
