Canal Street, Steelworks Museum Parking Lot MINE RESCUE CAR NO. 1
B-5. State Register 12/09/1998, 5PE.2937
Built in 1882 as a Wagner Palace Sleeping Car, the Pullman Company modified it in 1910 for the U.S. Bureau of Mines'
program to improve mine safety and rescue operations in Colorado's coal mines. It is one of only two such cars left in
the country. Six were outfitted by the Bureau to serve as educational centers and rapid response rescue stations.
Car No. 1 aided at numerous mining disasters before being sold to Colorado Fuel & Iron in 1923. The company used
it at safety conventions and as a traveling classroom. The Pueblo County Historical Society is currently working to
restore the car and plans to use it as an interpretive center. The car is now also on the National Register of Historic Places.
