Today I have several loose ends to take care of here in Cyrsti’s Condo.
First of all, Mandy (who is a fellow train buff) asked about the picture I posted of Liz and I on the Royal Gorge train in Colorado. It by far was my favorite of the trips we took. The road bed was better and the rail coach was more comfortable. Also, more importantly, the view of the river which ran next to us was gorgeous.
My next favorite was the Durango and Silverton narrow gauge trip, also in Colorado. I enjoyed the fact the trip was pulled by a real steam engine. Also I enjoyed both Durango and Silverton. Silverton was especially authentic to me.
Finally, we also rode the Georgetown Loop narrow gauge railway. It was fine but still my third favorite to me. So there you go Mandy, my humble opinion on the rails we road.
As you can see in the picture, it was definitely windy on several of the trips, so bring a brush for your hair (or wig).
Speaking of pictures, Connie (above) sent in a festive new holiday picture to share!
