Victorian Train celebration on the C&T Scenic Railroad
« on: September 20, 2021, 01:28:36 AM »
The Friends of the C&T Scenic Railroad have celebrated their 50th Anniversary in grand style with the newly restored Glenbrook and the RGS #20 running on their line. They also had the Eureka & Palisade #4 Eureka which is back for another visit. And on top of that they had a whole train of 1880s passenger cars. All of the videos can be seen on the Narrow gauge Discussion Forum.

While the WW&F is building a new #9; the C&TS has gone almost as far with their restoration of the D&RG #470 Tourist Sleeper. This is the first Pullman built car restored in Colorado, complete with its complex Pullman trucks.

If you go to YouTube and type in "Victorian Iron Horse Roundup," you will find many, many videos of these historic events.
