Never mind I found the info on page 48 of Frank R. Hollenbeck's Book "The Gilpin Tram."

"The warming house was a stone building 245 feet long, 28 feet wide and 7 feet high. Three Tracks ran the entire length with a drop of nine feet. Heat was provided by steam pipes between the tracks and 3 warming stoves, the temperature in the building often reached 120 degrees, but even this heat was not always sufficient to loosen the frozen ore."

Your Thread can't have any NEW Posts added to it due to a technical-issue

All of what's already here works fine is viewable & can be linked to as usual

I have had to LOCK it though to ensure no NEW Posts are added

I would advise starting a Part-2 Thread & continuing there


:f:
