And he didn't do real well with the Monte Vista "parking freight cars on the front lawn" issue either.
Price as I remember was around $3M, might be a bit off on that, thing has potential but will take some
bucks to make it work. You'd think it's off on the beaten track but the tourist traffic through South
Fork is pretty sizeable.

How long is this line? Who owns from Alamos to Creede?

The line from South Fork to Alamosa is an Ed Ellis/San Luis and Rio Grande property. South Fork to
Wasson (doesn't make Creede anymore) is the property of Bob Shank and can be yours for but a small
pittance of what the Raiders paid for 57 acres in Vegas!!

I am thoroughly confused.... doesn't this line already have a tourist railroad, or this another one? How many miles was this operation?
