The Lowry/Buckley/Fitzsimons Railroad originated as a spur from the Union Pacific Railroad tracks 5.68 miles east of 6th Avenue and Dayton Street. Its tracks passed Fitzsimons Army Medical Center while also connecting Lowry AFB in Denver to Buckley Field in Aurora paralleling 6th Avenue. The train’s cargo consisted of coal and other supplies supporting the three military bases.
