Yippee!, it’s out first Railfan Trip of 2012 and we are off to Parker, CO. We knew an old 1909 Passenger Coach had been moved from Centennial, CO to Parker that I had not yet photograph but a friend at work made me aware of a Caboose in downtown Parker. So, since we were already heading out that way to see family we decided to make a quick RRAdventures trip out of it too.
Here is the building that holds the Denver and New Orleans Model Railroad Club…
… and as you can see, D&RGW Caboose #1416 along with other RR pieces are outside as well!!!
From here we headed north along Parker Road to track down the new location of the C&S Coach. (Built. 1909)
(I understand this is actually a Santa Fe Coach; possible #9656)
Also at this location was a nice sign talking about RR History of Parker, CO that I didn’t know about.
Well, it was just a quick couple of stops but well worth the time. Took a few different angles at both locations that will get posted on my RRAdventures website later but these are my choice photos I wanted to share right away.
On a side note I also found this old photo that shows the original Depot and Water Tower.
