Paul Birkholz at the unusual "Y" switch at the west end of the Cliff siding at Pinecliff, CO. SP #328 leading a westbound coal empty out of Cliff. SP #376 and another SP unit following SP #328 as DPU's. We all piled into Paul's Suburban and chased #328 back to East Portal.
Here the DPU's are passing Tolland.
SP #328's DPU's entering Moffat Tunnel. Two more founding ARF members made it just after the first group picture, so here they are featured in their own group shot at Cliff (Pinecliff, CO)...
Three of us stuck around long enough to see the passing of westbound UP #7308 leading a consist of 8 engines. It looked like an impressive lashup, however, only the first 3 units were on-line.
