THE SILVERTON RAILROAD COMPANY
Railroad pass #468 issued to Gustavus H. Stoiber and his wife, Laura
This pass was signed by Moses Liverman as General Manager of the narrow-gauge line.
A Civil War veteran, participant in the Black Hills, Dakota Territory gold rush, Congressional clerk, and consultant on Ute Indian affairs, became the superintendent of Mears’s Silverton Railroad in 1889. Liverman soon became general manager of the Silverton Railroad, as Mears spent more and more of his time in Denver. Liverman was tasked with keeping the Silverton Railroad running while budgets tightened and snow mounted. Moses was also one of the incorporators of The Silverton Northern Railroad Company.
