POTD - Steaming On Toward Colder Days

A sudden dip in the temperature this weekend reminded me that winter is only a little over 3 months away. Former D&RGW class K-28 engine 473 makes her way northward past the tank at Hermosa,Colorado toward the wye at Cascade on a cold, clear Saturday morning in December 2003.

  1. Nice shot!
    Don't fret about the weather--winter runs on the Silverton can be a lot of fun!

    BTW- #473 is a K-28.

  2. You're right! I stand corrected. Thanks!

  3. There's nothing better than steam in cold weather!
