Fortunate indeed! I was lucky enough to ride behind both 1744 and 18, including 18's maiden voyage on a charter. Earl, I don't know if you've ever talked about that trip, but I recall feverish last minute work to get it going, a number of brake system issues which I think were finally isolated to one of the hoppers and numerous other minor issues along the way. Nevertheless it was a memorable trip, with an overnight in La Veta and runs east of La Veta on the second morning.

So glad I was able to take advantage of steam on La Veta pass and sad to realize it will almost certainly never happen again.
