San Luis Central Railroad Overview

The San Luis Central Railroad was founded in 1913 to haul sugar beets from grower to processor. The railroad was acquired in 1969 by the Pea Vine Corporation and today operates freight traffic through a connection with the San Luis and Rio Grande Railroad hauling mainly grain, potatoes and fertilizer. SLC is also a railcar owner, owning mostly refrigerator cars and boxcars.

The railroad is 13 miles long, located between Sugar Junction (east of Monte Vista, Colorado) and Center, Colorado.

The railroad interchanges with SLRG at Sugar Junction, Colorado.
