Como Colorado

On my way home, i stayed a day to help at Como. I helped get track 6 down to access that stall of the round house. In stall 5 is #4, Klondike Kate with her nose open.

New track in Ridgway Colorado

I went out to the work week that was held the first week of June and helped put down some rail on the new 1/2 mile loop that the Museum is building. We ended up at about 1200 feet of 75 lb rail. It will give Goose 1 a place to shed her feathers!

Re: PTC - What Happens with Mainline Steam?

Interesting question. I dont know either but can speculate a few ideas. One is the diesel will control the train so will be there. Hopefully not in the lead and second, add it to the steam engine.
