8444 Meadow River Wash 5/80
Author: callum_out

I don't remember exactly what this trip was about though I believe it was for a Las Vegas celebration.
It rained heavily at times during the chase South from Caliente (NV) and the dirt road back to 93 was
about like driving on ball bearings! Ah, the good old days?

Callum, my copy of "50 Years of UP Steam Excursions" indicates the Las Vegas in May of 1980. That would be that trip with the early water car along wit 8444. I remember helping hostel it around at the Cheyenne Shops to make up the consist.

Bob, you're probably right, the date stamp on the slide was pretty hard to read.
