The Ski Train has left Denver.

The train that has provided weekend service between Denver and Winter Park for 69 years has been sold to a Canadian company. The sale was confirmed by a spokesman for Denver business man Phil Anschutz.

The yellow-and-black mainstay of Union Station has been sold to Algoma Central Railway Inc. That's a subsidiary of the Canadian National Railway Co.

The Ski Train had carried skiers to Winter Park since 1940. Anschutz spokesman Jim Monaghan says the Ski Train consistently lost money but would not give a sale price.
