Member Ted Fisk asks: A question came up in another group, maybe Fallen Flags, regarding Black Canyon of the Gunnison. When we visited there in 2008, down in the canyon, there is a chunk of a railroad bridge. On it was a DRGW 2-8-2 with tender and caboose. in the picture taken in 2015 they are not there and I seem to recall that they were taken for some sort of repair/restoration. Can someone tell me what the status of the locomotive and caboose is? Thank you.Wikipedia says it's under restoration. Latest photo I've seen was reported to be taken in 2013. https://rradventures.wordpress.com/2013/06/08/2013-summer-vacation-part-8a/img_5467/

"Planes and Trains" Certainly an odd collection of equipment all in one frame. A classic 4-4-0, a German Stuka, a Boeing 727 among other excellent museum pieces staged on display in the transportation section of the Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry http://tinyurl.com/sre-MOSI. -Michael William Sullivan. 8/07/16 http://www.railpictures.net/photo/585882/

Rarely did the Rio Grande Zephyr cross the Wasatch and the Rocky Mountains with only two F9s for power, but it did happen at times when the consist was light. Train No. 18 from Salt Lake City is less than a mile from the station stop at Provo, coasting into Backman's Curve on a sunny April 30, 1976 morning. Photo by James Belmont.
