Apologies for the late reply. This is one of those threads that has become a bit difficult to keep up with.... smiling smiley

I think the current charter situation is a bit unusual. There have been a lot of charters run and proposed lately.....more than normal. I know this because I've participated in a bunch of them in the last 6 months and I have more coming up shortly. The blizzard of charters, plus the 150th anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad and all of the uncertainty around that are making it tough for any charter operator who is announcing anything near-term.....particularly if it isn't anything new or different. In my mind for instance, the recently announced European tour of Colorado is in this category. Aspects of it are different (and interesting to me), but largely, it is more of the same. It is also a long, tiring, 1 week-plus ordeal, and the way it is being offered is pretty much all or nothing. I love this stuff.....but I'm having difficulty getting enthusiastic for a marathon of more of the same.

That said, seeing Eureka & Palisade #4 with a short mixed train in the desert on the east side of the C&TS, possibly with Glenbrook as well.......sign me up! To whom do I address the check? If I run out of vacation, I'll take days off without pay. That idea is something that has not been done, and I personally know charter operators who would get behind that in a heartbeat. Finding a gap in the schedule of events that would work for everybody is the key. If we're going to do it, we need to do it in the not too distant future, because the potential patrons and performers aren't getting any younger.

I think the market climate for charters right now all depends on what you are offering. Offer something really new or rare and I think people would come.
