A few more,,,,lonely Towner Line on the return trip
Author: frntinplate

At the Arlington Siding, sunset with some lonely signals no longer serving their orginal duty. Long since abandoned and vandalized, they now face away from the track no longer able to protect the stored tank cars on the siding.   Taken on the way home while towing one of the motorcars back from the set off at Haswell, CO.

A few more from the festivities at Eads
Author: frntinplate

1. Af few miles west of Eads the Col Pac locos with Santa  waited for the motorcar group to arrive from Haswell.
2. A line of kids waiting to tell Santa what they want for Christmas, locos holding the main on Maine Street crossing.
3. Some of the former owners still shown on the signal bunglow in downtown Eads   Note that spelling on the bunglow does not match actual spelling of Maine on street signs....
