Nicely done, JCB. Those days are gone...but surely not forgotten. Thanks for bringing back some of the good times.

Wow, it's double tracked? That must've been some undertaking in that terrain. Is the whole Clovis subdivision double tracked now?

Love the photo, but I believe those are on spine cars. If you look close you can see a shadow under where the wheel platform is constructed.
