C&TS Photo Freight - Day 1

September 12, 2017 08:44AM
First, THANK YOU, to all the people who made this possible. The C&TS, and all its people, from President / GM Bush down; the C&TS Commission; and the Friends of the C&TS and their many volunteers. Thank you very much. I had a delightful three days, and I think it was worth every penny.

A few photos from Day 1.
IMG_2772rc.jpg No. 463 repainted as RGS 455. The Antonito shop isn't quite a match fro Ridgway, but the effect is quite good. Waiting to be coupled to the consist.
IMG_2780rc.jpg Heading west out of Antonito, with the dust from the chasers finally less of an issue aftere the first couple of miles.
IMG_2793rc.jpg A run-by at Ferguson's Trestle.
IMG_2830rc.jpg The runby near the top of the Whiplash looks almostg like it might be a stand-in for the area near Mancos, although there ought to be more of the oak brush in evidence. Seriously, I am very pleased with how carefully the team putting this together worked to try to find locations which were reminiscent of the RGS, even if not dead on matches.

More to come as time allows.
