Jim,


Can you tell the number of the UP power car that was used while the Moffat =
Tunnel Power car was being rebuilt for that first season?


Galen Coupe, Sugar Land, TX Anything worth doing, is worth doing right. F=
ar too much of what we experience in life is based upon half-assedness, and=
it degrades the experience of life for all of us. Grumpy

Aaaaand, I discover that I made quite the error here. For all of the seas=
ons listed below, increase by one year, for the first season with the Tempo=
cars was winter 1988. The power car wasn't ready at the start of that sea=
son, but was brought online soon after the first season started. Its origi=
nal Alco fuel tank was replaced between the first and second seasons with t=
he boxy GE tank, so if you see photos/video showing the Alco tank you know =
it was 1988.

Egg on my face,
Jim Griffin

4) Ski Train: It's actually possible to track the evolution of motive power=
practices on the Ansco train; various books augmented by the dozens of vid=
eo rollbys paint this picture:
- First season (1989) and second season (1989-90), two or three DRGW geeps.
- Third season (1990-91), start seeing pairs of tunnel motors or sometimes =
an SD50.
- Fourth season (1991-92), begins much like third season, with a couple SP-=
system interlopers, but by the end there's SP GP60 No. 9738 on the point of=
nearly every run (leading a DRGW tunnel motor (5386). Special runs during=
the summer seemed to have a pair of SSW GP60s.
