Default Got another one for ya

Does anyone have a picture of Denver and Rio Grand RR's train #8? I have this block ticket from 1903. I figure its a long shot to find this very train but it sure would be an exciting find!

Also, does anyone know where I can find a map that would show the blocks? I am trying to figure out what the second time is for. I found one crude map which leads me to believe it was the time they cleared the block. Additionally, as rough as it is and being written in pencil makes me think it was written while going down the tracks. The CS&CC is the Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek District Railway. So the distance from the Colorado springs station to a junction with a railroad called the Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek can be assumed plausible to clear in 9 minutes. A more accurate map or someone that knows the history of the area might be able to confirm that.

I still haven't gotten anywhere with the telegram. Any guesses on that one would be appreciated.
