Bond

4.5
Bond is an unincorporated community and U.S. Post Office in Eagle County, Colorado, United States. The Bond Post Office has the ZIP Code 80423. Although Bond has never had a sizable population, the town has significant railroad history, and once was a stop for most of the passenger trains along the Denver and Rio Grande Western's main line.GeographyBond is located at, 133 miles west of Denver at an elevation of 6600 feet . It is located on the Colorado River, and is at the southern terminus of the Colorado River Headwaters National Scenic Byway.RailroadBond was originally served by the never finished Denver and Salt Lake Railroad as a midpoint to the railroad's eventual terminus in Craig, Colorado. Bond was the closest point of the rail line to the nearest through line, the Denver and Rio Grande Western's (D&RGW) line which passed through Dotsero about 40mi downstream. After the D&RGW purchased the rights to connect the two lines, with the intent of having a more direct connection to Denver, Bond became the north end of the Dotsero Cutoff of the D&RGW's main line, with the tracks from Bond to Craig becoming a spur line. Bond remained a stop on the Denver and Rio Grande Western's passenger trains until their last train, the Rio Grande Zephyr was discontinued in 1983.
