This image was taken after the 1995 (?) Durango BMW MOA National. Kathy and I pulled out oafter the National and parked the van and trailer and decided to ride the Durango-Silverton narrow gage after seeing the engines in Silverton. Never been that close to a steam engine before! THEY ARE ALIVE!!

Nice. hung out in Durango and Hesperus for a few months as part of a 6-month, 9000 mile walkabout during one of the US economic "corrections." The steam trains echoing in the canyon still ring in the memory.

Hi Bucky, a couple of years ago on the way to an event in Grand Junction I spent a day on "ELY" NV. they have a museem there and a train ride. It is fabulous!!! The sheirff is on the train, the bandits are on the train, the hooker is on the train (She sat with me since I was alone .... NICE) The train took us to a wildwest (set) there was a gun fight, a lynching. We got robbed .... It was fabulous ;-)

Great pix! Check out the steam train from Route 66 town Williams, AZ to the South rim of the Grand Canyon if you haven't. It's a fun, campy but fun train robbery, and open bar.. a relaxing way to get to the canyon vs driving a cage.

Nice looking and nicely set up bikes. Been to Ely but only on four wheels. Next time will be different. They used to serve an outrageous Navaho Taco at the restaurant on the West end of town, North side of highway, just before the turn to the South. I see a train ride in our future. Thanks for posting.
