    EDIT (Made July 18, 2006)

    I have been making major modifications to RRAdventures so if you find my images missing from this topic they are not gone, just moved or renamed within the site. VISIT the my RRAdventures website by click on the link below in the signature and follow into the Colorado RRAdventures section. As time permits I will try to go back through the topic and relink all the missing images.

    Darren, did you make my old stomping grounds around the loop from Raton over Raton Pass to Trinidad to Stonewall, over Apishapa Pass and down into Walsenburg then back? Certainly beautiful scenery and excellent fishing up there! I remember it back in steam days, hearing those "Wild Cat" Mountain Whistles coming down from Raton Pass.

    Not this trip, we started from home on the south side of Denver taking I-25 south to Walsenburg then turned west into the mountains...

    Darren,
    Are you a D&RGW nut yet? Do I need to take you to South Draw, or Tunnel 27 to convert you? ;)

    Seriously, the pics are nice! The 01441 caboose is a nice piece. Is it open to walk in, or just a display?
