I’ll admit it. I love trains. I especially love trains I can wander through or ride.
On our last vacation, we were fortunate enough to catch the last train in Georgetown Colorado. It is a narrow gauge train that used to carry ore.
We had a diesel engine push us up the rails to Silver Plume then we were blessed with a steam engine guiding us down.
It was awesome.
It also rained. Since the car we were in was open air, we got a little wet and cold. But the ride was beautiful.
Here are some photos from our ride.
Here is the river we crossed four times as we climbed up then down the hill.
The engine. Yes, there are two of them.
More cars on a side track. We could see in the windows that these were used as storage.
Another view of the river.
And the original station from the Victorian era. We didn’t get to stop long enough to go inside, but I plan to go back.
Thankfully the hubbinator loves trains too. So there will be plenty more train rides in our future.
Until next time.
