Burnham Engineering Map (BUR02)

Rio Grande’s famed Burnham shops was “home” shop, the epicenter of the three-state D&RGW system that once included both standard and narrow gauge steam locomotives. The area was named after George Burnham, a principle in the Baldwin Locomotive Works. Starting as a small facility in the late 1870s, Burnham grew into a massive locomotive and car shop complex. Workers at Burnham built, repaired, and maintained all types of equipment at the shops.

The BUR02 map represents the earliest version the Burnham shop complex located in central Denver in 1890. Other Burnham maps (BUR01 & BUR03 both revised in 1953) in the societies collection show the progression of the shop through the years
