A business team trying to revive the Ski Train service between Denver and Winter Park for the upcoming season has asked Union Station officials for help in keeping the tradition going. In April, billionaire Phil Anschutz's company said it was selling the Ski Train's railcars to a Canadian railroad operator and ending the 69-year run of the Colorado excursion train. Earlier this month, Iowa Pacific Holdings, which operates tourist trains in southern Colorado and shortline freight railroads there and in other states, said it was interested in taking over the Ski Train operation.
