This is really a beautiful photo and worthy of being in a frame for hanging on the wall.  I can't stop looking at it!

Don't ignore the "wildlife"....I see a Mustang followed by a Rabbit!?!

This photo must have been not long after Mr. Bradshaw bought the railroad and junked those diamond stacks....

The wildflowers make the photo for me.  It's a day brightener for certain.  Thanks for posting.

The D&S took over the D&RGW Silverton Branch in May of 1981.  So, this is very early in D&S history.

Thanks for posting the photo. My wife and I had ridden the Silverton the year before, the last year of D&RGW operation. And K28 476 pulled our train. I agree with Earl,  a great historical shot of the early years of D&SNG operations. Here is a photo in roughly the same spot in May of 2020. K37 493 is hauling a modified flat/clearance car to check out the clearances for their new diesels up in the canyon. I believe the D&S put in the siding a few years back. Note the roadbed and track improvements. Thanks again for the photo.
