Colorado Railroad Trips in 2019 by Michael Ditkoff at Membership Meeting in November 2022

 This program covers one of his trips to Colorado. In June 2019, Michael rode the rails of former Denver & Rio Grande Western. He rode Amtrak’s California Zephyr round trip between Denver and Grand Junction, going through the Moffat Tunnel. The next day after returning to Denver, he drove to Glenwood Springs, paralleling the railroad as much as possible for photography. After spending the night in Georgetown, a Denver suburb, he rode the Georgetown Loop Railroad round trip between Georgetown and Silver Plume. In the afternoon, he drove to Canon City along the former Joint Line operated by the Santa Fe and D&RGW. The next morning, he rode the Royal Gorge Scenic Railroad as far as Parkdale - - in the engine, on a regular excursion. The tourist railroad operates on the now closed Tennessee Pass. The Pass is the original route to Salt Lake City
