Some DRGW Action
Author: BNSF-6432

Here's some shots from a trip my father took 41 years ago to the Denver, CO while spending some time on the Rio Grande while there. He succeeded more than I did during my visit a few years ago as the Moffat line didn't offer anything.

1) A GP30 leads a GP40 at the base of the mountains in Pinecliffe, CO.

2) Looking back at the same train revealing several trailers on the head end.

3) The pair of four axle GP's reveal themselves again in a break in the trees.

Despite stiff grades and long climbs, the D&RGW kept buying B-B units.  Heavy coal trains up and down Moffett and Tennessee Passes with skill.  That always impresses the heck out of me.
