    Our final stop along the old Creede branch was in Monte Vista, CO. Someday I hope to explore the remainder of the route. I happened to find the yard where I think that the group restoring the Creede branch has staged their equipment.

    From Monte Vista we went to Durango, CO and spent the night. We happened to catch the 8:15 am departure of the D&SNGRR on the following day.

    Some TLC is needed for 278. You are welcome.

    I have photos of some of those goodies you found in Monte Vista in 2005 as well as some found in South Fork. When I get a chance, I'll post some

    An ancient bulkhead flat:

    I'm gonna guess that SLRG owns this stuff?

    For some reason, I cannot find the pic of the MKT boxcar at the tail end...

    Here's a gon in that train as well.

    I forgot to get pics of the other items in South Fork, namely the stuff Ben has posted already...
