My grandpa told me a story about one of his friends the back in the 50-60's winched his old MB down a 70 foot cliff with their winch. He said the group his friend was with looked in the distance and saw a rail ex and a cave with huge wooden doors and they wanted to go see what this was. This was in the hills in Colorado just west of Denver. The hook up the winch to another jeep and back it off the edge. Four of the 6-8 guys rode on the grill of the jeep as they winched it down. Now you. An just imagine this picture. When the guys got down to the doors about a mile from the winch cliff. They noticed that one of the doors had fallen off and they saw there was a train engine inside. The looked at the train for hours and why was it abandoned on the mountain untouched for years. The drive down the tracks and found that they had taken up the tracks before they had gotten the engine out so the backed it into the mine and left it. The group wanted to take something from the train but the only thing they could get off of it was the bell. They took the bell and winched back up the cliff and went home. I think this is the best story I have ever heard. I am just getting into jeeping and I wish to have these kind of experiences on some of my trips.
