2010: Railfanning South of Town

31 Jul

Lisa and I went out on July 31st to track down more RR Stations that we have not photographed with a long list still to go.

On this day we will add to our photograph inventory the following locations in Colorado

  1. D&RGW – Castle Rock
  2. AT&SF – Castle Rock
  3. AT&SF – Sedalia
  4. AT&SF – Palmer Lake (Ex-Larkspur)

After we left Sedalia and heading towards Palmer Lake we came across a couple of strange cows in a field and when I say strange I mean Camels!  Not something you expect to find in Colorado but yet here they were…

During on travels we passed under the Rio Grande Bridge at Monument, CO as a BNSF Coal Train passed by. Time to stop for a few shots

We would then send some time at the Western Museum of Mining and Industry which also has some nice RR equipment there related to the Mining Industry; one they enjoy running up and down a small section of track.

Our last stop of the day would be in Colorado Springs at the Pikes Peak Municipal Street Railway (they seem to go by various names here) which also has lots of other RR equipment around. The highlight here is a ride on one of their operational Trolleys.
