This month's Rocky Mountain Railroad Club meeting topic will be the first 30 years of restoration at the Georgetown Loop in Colorado.

Bill Robie was an employee, volunteer, and fan of the reconstruction projects for both the Central City and Georgetown Loop Railroads during the Ashby and Ropchan era. Bill will present a slide show covering many of the highlights of the Georgetown Loop Railroad early years from inception, to include the predecessor years at the Central City Narrow Gauge Railroad. Dave Ropchan, part owner of the two former operations, will provide most of the narration. Images will include moving #44 from Central to Silver Plume, laying the very first rail, some of the early employee special runs, double-headers, and rebuilding the famous Devil’s Gate Viaduct “high bridge”. The images shown here are from Bill Robie.

We look forward to seeing a few new faces, and have heard from several past and present Loopers that will be there.

Like all of our meetings, it's open to the public and everyone with an interest in railroading or history is welcome to come. We use the meeting hall on the southeast side of Christ Episcopal Church at 2950 South University Boulevard in Denver, Colorado. Doors open usually around 7:10 and the program begins after updates and introductions at 7:30 pm. To respect the church property -- no food, weapons or animals please.
