Ouray CO RR Days Sept 15 - 18

September 01, 2011 10:25PM
Just thought I'd post the general schedule of events for our upcoming Ouray County Railroad Days at the Ridgway Colorado Railroad museum.

Thursday, Sep 15: Guided hike on Silverton RR grade, Red Mountain Town to Guston.

Friday, Sep 16: Guided hike on Silverton RR grade, Guston to corkscrew turntable, Ironton and end of track at Albany.

Saturday Sep 17: Museum open house with short rides on Goose 4!! Yes, I said Goose 4! Open house at an excellent San Juan-based HOn3 layout in the morning, followed by Narrow gauge symposium of 6 half-hour talks and an evening keynote on the Ouray Branch of the D&RG.

Short talk topics include: Emma Sweeney; origins of the Galloping Goose name; progress report on Goose 4; Before and after a steam passenger trip; Excitement and humor on the narrow gauge; and the Silverton Northern and Silverton, Gladstone and Northerly railroads.

Sunday, Sep 18: guided auto tours along the RGS from Ridgway to Lizard Head (all day trip, 30+ stops), and the Ouray Branch D&RG (half-day trip, Colona to Ouray).
