The Graham Park Branch was originally constructed as a two mile narrow gauge branch, connecting the Wolftone Mine with the D&RG's Chrysolite Extension at Graham Park Junction, CO. The line was later extended from Wolftone Junction (about a mile from the Wolftone Mine) to North Moyer, located on the north side of California Gulch.

The section from Graham Park Junction to Wolftone Junction was converted to dual-gauge track in 1913, and the whole branch standard gauged in 1917. The branch and all of its spurs were removed in 1941.
