The Georgetown loop rail road steaming down the track.




passing train
While driving up the I-70 I spotted a plume of steam along the side of the mountain.  As soon as possible I pulled of the road and started taking pictures.

Eventually I ended up at the station and went poking around the yard.   This is the station in Silver Plume CO.

Here is Engine 12 resting after returning from the first run of the new tourist season.




inside the cab
We made it up into the cab of the engine.  I was very nice to feel the warmth of the boiler when it was cold and windy outside.
