Couple photos from 2014 of my two youngest--Kai was 2 at the time and William was 4 almost 5. We started the day in Ridgway, went to Ouray, Silverton where we caught 480 and 482 along with 315 being steamed up. Missed out on a free ride to Elk Park because we were on a mission and stopped at the RH in Durango and then went to Chama to stay in Roger and Barbera's Hotel. We rode out of Chama the next day behind 489 and 487 on the return. At this point they still enjoy trains--William is even starting to build an On30 layout. Not sure how long it will last but it's fun to have them enjoy the NG with me.
