    Well, I lost the link, but the D&SNG has suffered a washout of a bridge and some right of way. The article I read stated eight to sixteen weeks for repairs. I wonder why that long? Anyhow.....

    I think it just takes a long time in that area/terrain. Hope it goes to the short side.

    They can't catch a break, first the fire, then hurting SP 18, now this?

    You can see that the bridge is/was a single span over the creek between the concrete abutments.
    Looks like the creek would prefer to have, at least, a second span at that location.

    Would they even be allowed to construct anything new?

    Evidently they had replaced something there with the newer abutments.

    What a log jam! Clearly not helping the issue...

    Any updates to this? Have heard they are still running excursions but from 18 miles north of Durango as start point.

    I, too, am curious. By now we should have heard something, hopefully positive.
