Mandalay Station


Address: 7253 W. 105th Pl., Broomfield,80021 Denver and Interurban Railroad Time Table No. 5 Mileage Measurement is 12.1

Mandalay Station was a structure with two intersecting walls and roof to provide weather protection for the customers of the Interurban Railroad. It was located 12.14 miles from the junction in Denver. Time Table Number 5, which is not dated, lists Mandalay. Consecutive time tables were not available, however, a time table dated January 1925 omits Mandalay but lists a Churches Road Crossing at 12.15 miles into the route on the other side of the track. Mandalay Station was dismantled when it was no longer in use. It was probably named for the Rudyard Kipling song, "On the Road to Mandalay."
