A Soggy Moment on the Georgetown Loop
Timing is everything and this brakeman on the Georgetown Loop didn't have much luck this day as a torrential mountain downpour has hit just as he is required to handle the turnout for #12's runaround move. The little 3-foot gauge 2-8-0 will couple up to the other end of the train for the trip back up the line to Silver Plume, CO. A few minutes after departing the Georgetown depot, the train will traverse the famous curved trestle of the Loop, dimly visible in the background.
Railroading is an all-weather sport.
