Like mining certificates, railroad certificates from Colorado are highly sought after, mainly because of its position at the pinnacle of narrow gauge mountain railroading. About 15% of all known varieties come from the narrow gauge Denver & Rio Grande and its descendent, the Denver & Rio Grande Western. Few of the remaining varieties are common.
