Main Street Buena Vista (literally)! With 2,600 residents, the town of Buena Vista is roughly half the size of its neighbor Salida. Interestingly, there is no siding in Buena Vista. The main line just comes through town. 100 years ago, Buena Vista was the city in which Rio Grande's Tennessee Pass was joined by the mainline for the Colorado Midland. The two railroads paralleled each other between Buena Vista and Crystal Lake. Here, an afternoon storm pushes its way east out of town.
