Say hello to the "Cold War Horse"! The horse is a sculpture created by a local artist. It was made as a tribute to Rocky Flats, the plant that created triggers for nuclear bombs until the 1990s when it was shut down. It is located between the tracks and CO-72, just west of Indiana Street.

And served by the Rio Grande via the Rocky spur. I doubt the DOE shipped the triggers by rail, but a lot of material was needed for the processes involved and that did move by rail.  
 
But seriously? A red horse? For war (Rev 6:4)? Puh-leeze! DIA called. They want Blucifer's mate back in their basement.
