Photo of the Week for Sep 11, 2011 - Sep 17, 2011
D&RGW hitches a ride on a standard gauge flat for its third cross-country trip. The first was obviously from Baldwin to the Grande, and the second was in 1973 when it was sold to Knotts Berry Farm in California. They restored it and ran it for a couple seasons, but eventually found it unsuitable for their tight loop. So, in 1981, it was bundled up again and sent to the Huckleberry Railroad in Michigan, where it continues to operate in top notch condition today. Here we see it on flat ATSF 94658 at Barstow, CA.
