This site has moved to a new home!!! Please use the link below for the new location. This site will probably go down on December 1st. I have been unable to transfer this account to my new phone account so I am moving the pages over to a new service. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The photographs on this page were taken during my many
excursions up to Colorado. I live in Arizona so I only get to head
up during my vacation time. I try to venture into a new railroad
town each time that I head up that way. I enjoy seeking out any remains
of the narrow gauge lines that I can stumble across. Hopefully I
will get to explore the Ophir area a little more on my next trip.
I have hiked in to the site of the old Ames tank but I have not checked
out too much of the old trestle areas. On my last excursion into that area
it was pouring down and I was unable to do much exploring.
This is probably one of the best pictures that I have
snapped at Chama. I have taken many pictures of K27 #463 before
and after the restoration and was glad to see it go back into service after
so many years. This has to be my favorite operating engine.
This picture was taken on the 27th of May 1995 as a passenger train pulled
into Chama after a day out on the line.
On a trip to Chama during September of 97 I found engine #463 in disguise. The engine had been relettered for an RGS special and was down for the season.
I have never been able to get the lighting quite right when in Cimarron. It's just not a place that you plan to be for any length of time. This shot was taken in July of 91. I wish I could have seen this C16 running through the canyons but it was retired before I came along.
