2011: Tunnel District

27 May

Lisa and I did some moderate hiking today in Eldorado Canyon State Park where she told me that we might get a little Railfanning in at the top of the trail.

After climbing 1,200 feet in elevation change taking in great views of the mountain canyon along Rattlesnake Gulch Trail we reach a section of the Tunnel District. We had several great views of Tunnel#8, the Daylighted #9 and if I would have known exactly where we were we were also on top of Tunnel #10.

We got the California Zephyr (running late as normal), followed by a massive UP Freight, and also caught a work train. All heading west bound.

Here is just a couple of teaser shots until a later RRAdventures topic is done on this outing.

As we head home we stop by to find where the old C&S/UP Depot was moved to as well…
