Iowa-Tiger Aerial Tram Terminal
You can now see the diorama shown below on display at the mining museum in Silverton, Colorado.
This building served the Iowa-Tiger Mining and Milling Company outside of Silverton, Colorado. Ore was sent to this building via a 6000' long aerial tram system from the Silver Lake mining district stopping mid way at their processing mill in Arastra Gulch. The sacked ore was then loaded into boxcars spotted on a Silverton Northern Railroad siding track.
The upper track is where the SN delivered supplies to be shipped to the mill and mines along the aerial tram. This configuration provides the perfect situation for any railroad wishing to have a busy industry along any railroad.
AMM 107 - $299.95 + $16 shipping.
