Two diesel-powered, cog driven Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway trains at the 14,115 foot high summit of Pikes Peak on May 21, 2017. As of March 15, 2018, the railway has ceased operations for the foreseeable future. They state the entire infrastructure needs to be replaced or upgraded; this includes the rails, the ties, and the passenger cars.
