Railfest 2008

The day started out with a planned stop at the high bridge. Unfortunately the 315 was behind schedule climbing into Rockwood and the planned stop was not to be. We ended up running all the way to Silverton as there was too much traffic behind us to make any stops. Needless to say all of my shots on the way up were from the train. I did hear that the crew enjoyed the pretty much non-stop trip to Silverton. If I was in the cab I would probably like that too.

Here we are in Silverton and the crew is tying down our consist so that the 315 can participate in the meet at the depot.

The second train pulled by the 480 is backing down to the wye to be turned.

The first train pulled by 481 is backing into position for the meet at the depot.
