Railfest 2012

The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad celebrated Railfest again August 17-20.   This year the fest was managed by True West Magazine.  We think this was an attempt to broaden the appeal beyond train fans.  Of course , to most railfans this was a dilution of value accompanied by an increase in prices.  We chased trains and hiked to some unique vantage points for good photography.

  1. Galloping Goose is still my favorite, but the trains in a mountain setting tell a story of long ago. Thanks, guys.
