Through the trees....

A couple more steam pic's.....Heading back to Durango, a three hour trip, including a few stops for water, if they could have collected  some of what was coming down from the sky we needn't have stopped....

WOW, I only can imagine what a great trip this was. I wished the picture had sound with it.
Great treatment.

This just doesn't look real, Frank - you must have had an out-of-body experience to capture this!
Frank L Croston.: I've been having one of those since I got here, Elisabeth....smile
Right out of the good, ol' days, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just, Ginnie.
A real train workout it looks like with all that steam/smoke.
Frank L Croston.: It certainly did work hard, Jacquelyn.

That's a long journey to take, an exciting one too from the image here Frank
Frank L Croston.: It is long, Chris, some people just do it one way, and take the coach back, it's certainly scenic,and in places exciting.
That locomotive has a real lived in look about it!
Frank L Croston.: I really liked that about them,Bill, they are the real thing!

Hahah!! Yes.. good point smile Just think, though, on a warm, sunny day, you would have seen little steam (I'll post such an image "soon" taken two days before our trips). That old box car looks like it's on its last legs. Looking at this now, they track bed looks like it could do with some shoring up.
Frank L Croston.: The bed does look a little washed away, it must be some maintenance job to keep it going, though I'd rather walk this track, than Blackpool central to Blackpool south, like I used to as a lad. The rain certainly added some atmosphere though Alan, a memorable day indeed.

Great to hear that Arizona received a swathe of wetness. We are still waiting.
Frank L Croston.: Well this was in Colorado about a month ago, Louis, but yesterday we had rain,snow, and last night it was down to 22deg', but the sun is shining and it's a lovely day. Hope you get some rain soon.
What a great looking engine and the boxcar (note the use of the correct term) behind needs a bit of TLC as does the track by the look of it.
Frank L Croston.: It's a beauty isn't it, Brian, the boxcar got used on the trip back to pick up some hikers waiting at the side of the track with all their equipment, it does look a bit worse for wear though, I wonder if the track looks so bad due to the truly torrential rain storm we were having.
Great details... fine stuff...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Larry.
