On wednesday the 24th of August I started my day
by visiting #315 in the park just south of the D&S. The 315 is
progressing very nicely and is in much better shape then when I first
saw it. After visiting the 315 I went to the depot to pick up my tickets
for the photographers special and the goose. My train wouldn't leave
until after lunch so I spent some time wandering around the roundhouse.
I was able to snap a few shots of 473 being turned on the turntable.
After lunch we watched the train being prepared for boarding for our
The first photo stop was out on the high line. We were dropped
off and then the train backed down to Rockwood. We then watched three
different trains roll through. After all was clear our train came by
for a runby and then we all boarded. A little further down the line we were
let off at the high bridge for another runby.
At cascade we had more photo opportunities as a boxcar was set
out and the train was turned for the return trip to Durango.
This is the type of night shot you get when you have no tripod and
don't really know all of the settings on your new camera. Night shot
