Folks.....we have a trader in our midst!

LOL! I'm glad the TRRs got a good mention. They have definitely set a high standard in the district and I for one would feel self-conscious about coming across like we were the pacesetters. Adam Mehlberg has worked tirelessly to both keep trails open and keep them beautiful.

As most of you know, I am also a model railroader and a Moffat fan. You probably have endured my annoying historical info every stinking time we go over Rollins Pass Road. Well, here is someone who has created a software program that lets you run near-prototypical trains over Rollins Pass:
http://www.silogic.com/SDA/Virtual_D_SL.pdf

On the third page, bottom right, you will see a snow plow train rounding a bend. Several of you have endured my stories about the plow-turning wyes at several locations on Rollins Pass. That picture is close to what it looked like when trains ran there. You may recognize the spot; there are now dispersed campsites to the left and downhill, and the wye is barely visible in the snow proceeding right.

Hmmm... do we have a common interest with the Rollins Pass Restoration Association? The time to strike may just be when the iron is hot...

I'll trade you for your turbo.

I wish she'd showed up, dammit!! I'm glad we got some press, but journalism just from behind a desk is kind of a shame.

Yes, thanks Bob (if you're reading this) for all your help! In addition to helping string cable, he was instrumental in spearheading the battery-welding for the shackle on the winch anchor. Good guy, and resourceful.. dude you should get a Cruiser!

Great work guys! I really wish I could've been there -- I'm glad we had such a strong showing. I'm proud to be a member of this club.
