Well done, gentlemen! No series of photos covering the 2011 Willow Creek Production Charter at the DSNG would be complete without a shot of the folks who made it all happen. When the final run-by was completed, Locomotive 478 was stopped on the famous High Line and the crew of our train came forward to face the cameras. They are (L-R): Brakeman Mike Nichols, Brakeman Steve Wasiura, Conductor Rich Millard, Engineer Bill Colley and Fireman Jeff Ellingson. Missing from the photo is a 6th crewmember who participated on the first day: Brakeman Josh Levine. Thanks guys, for an awesome couple of days in the Animas Canyon!
The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad are all that remains of the legendary Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge system. Here you'll find some of my favorites from these two beautiful railways.
