SP 18 on Rockwood - Cascade turn today, 7-18-19

July 18, 2019 06:33PM
Today SP 18 was scheduled to take the Thursday 11:10 am Rockwood - Cascade turn, substituting for the regular diesel. Not knowing when 18 would make the light engine run to Rockwood, I left Ridgway at 6 am just in case 18 was to run before the three regular Silverton turns. Good guess, as I encountered 18 heading north just past the event park. Here are a few video screen shots of the early morning action.

In Rockwood engine 18 made a number of switching moves, including turning one of the coaches, between the arrival and departure of the three well filled regular trains headed by 486, 476, and 481.
