Remarks & Notes 
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear

It's 1973, and the Denver and Rio Grande Western is running over the the high line on the Silverton Branch. The K-28 476 is leading this train along the High Line with its iconic diamond stack.

Okay, it's not 1973... Instead, it's 2023, and the Durango and Silverton, the successor to the D&RGW is running a throwback to fifty years earlier and a 'What if?' train as the Rio Grande never ran in the winter. It was a great weekend of seeing what could have been as the staff at the D&SNG did a stand up job of backdating the 476 to her historic appearance.
