Join Teddy Roosevelt on his Train Platform

This statue is beautiful! It looked so lifelike. It's pretty awesome how they incorporated the statue into the building and put a train platform to stand next to Teddy for photo ops.

As I first approached the [mapped statue location] at the corner of Longs Peak and Coffman, I saw a statue of Teddy, but he wasn't on a train platform. After driving the block a few times I finally found it -- Teddy on a train. Who would have thought there would be two Teddy Roosevelt statues 200 ft apart?

Teddy on the Train is about 300 feet towards the center of the block and the other Teddy Statue is across from this address, 600 Longs Peak. They are both easily accessible, but Teddy on a train isn't as out in the open as the other one.
