Cog railway's ride has been a unique one since they've started running again on Thursday. The conductors say they have been seeing riders aboard the train just to see the land charred by the Waldo Canyon fire. Though the railway doesn't come close to the burn, riders say the summit offers an aerial view of damaged areas.
"I wanted to see the fire damage, how it spread out and where it was laid out. I'm going to try to match it up with the maps, see if I can see where the fire storm went through and how it carried up through the Waldo Canyon," said rider Luke Hoppe. About 2,000 ride the railway every day during the summer.
