  • DRGW 5409 GOING EAST
    Posted Friday, September 29 2000 at 2202 h MDT
    The important point here is that according to the DRGW list, DRGW5409 will be working east towards Denver early Saturday morning - probably leaving Grand Junction around midnight. - NDHolmes

  • RAILFANNING THE ALAMOSA SUB
    Posted Friday, September 29 2000 at 1917 h MDT
    Took the day off work today (mainly to destress - I needed a long weekend) and went railfanning on the Alamosa Line. I just got home, and as soon as the laptop is plugged back in I'll try to get a trip report and photos posted. And besides, there really wasn't much RG news of interest today - but watch out, there will be a chartered Ski Train tomorrow morning - no word on power yet. - NDHolmes

  • DRGW SD50 COMING TO DENVER
    Posted Thursday, September 28 2000 at 1142 h MDT
    DRGW 5502, one of the Rio Grande SD50 fleet that seems to be captive to southern California, is headed into Denver from North Platte, apparently via Wyoming. It's expected to arrive in Denver at 0215h on 9/29. Just a heads up - if anyone gets photos, please post them. In other news, it seems the UP business train will leave Denver at noon, with the Es and UP4167 - one of the new SD70s. UPDATE 9/28-3:15pm: The UP Es traced at Glenwood Springs, CO, at 1740h MDT - NDHolmes

  • NEW SCHEDULE INFO FOR UP BUSINESS TRAIN
    Posted Wednesday, September 27 2000 at 2327 h MDT
    Thanks to the D&RGW list, we now have a tentative time schedule for the UP Board of Directors train that will be covering the Moffat today/tomorrow. This is currently what we think we know:
    Denver, CO: Depart 9/28 - 1200h
    Grand Jct, CO: Arrive 9/28 - 1945h Depart 9/28 - 1950h
    Helper, UT: Arrive 9/28 - 2310h Depart 9/29 - 1950h
    Salt Lake City, UT: Arrive 9/29 - 1000h

    Hope that helps, now go get some photos! -

  • UP Es AND BUSINESS TRAIN ON THE MOFFAT
    Posted Wednesday, September 27 2000 at 0852 h MDT
    There's been some debate as to whether the train will be leaving Denver today (9/27) or tomorrow (9/28), but regardless, it looks like the three E units on the front, along with a bright shiny new SD70. The word is it will be leaving about noon and heading for Glenwood Springs, where it will stop for the night before continuing to SLC the next day. Also, it looks like it will be returning to Denver via the Moffat on the 30th. UPDATE: See the above article for more accurate and fun details. - NDHolmes

  • GRANDES ON THE FRONT RANGE
    Posted Tuesday, September 26 2000 at 1349 h MDT
    Looks like DRGW3154 & 3155 will be on MDVPU tonight (9/26), and DRGW5385 will be headed west to Roper on (probably) MDVRO. Both are expected to depart around 1600h MDT. Also, for anyone in ColoSprgs, DRGW3084 has appeared as our new yard switcher. UPDATE: Looks like 5385 will be stopping in Helper, UT, later today - NDHolmes

  • SD40T-2s MOVING WEST
    Posted Sunday, September 24 2000 at 1514 h MDT
    According to observations off the DRGW mailing list, T-2s 5406 and 5409 will be departing Denver at about 4pm and work west back over the Moffat to Helper. And, better yet, they're coupled back-to-back and leading. In other Moffat news, looks like a UP passenger special will leave Denver for Glenwood at about noon on Wednesday, Sept. 27. - NDHolmes

  • DRGW 3107 GONE
    Posted Saturday, September 23 2000 at 1725 h MDT
    Looks like we've lost another one to age - DRGW 3107 was apparently deemed not worth repairing when an inspection on 13 Sept. 2000 revealed problems with the main generator and turbo. It's currently dead in tow to Hinkle, OR, probably headed for Boise and sale or rebuilding. - NDHolmes

  • WEB SITE UPDATE
    Posted Saturday, September 23 2000 at 1548 h MDT
    We've changed looks several times, and this is the latest one. Having more time on my hands, and feeling guilty about failing to get more D&RGW-related content up sooner, I've decided to get back to what I originally intended to do with DRGW.NET - maintain, preserve and present information on the Rio Grande. Please let me know any thoughts - NDHolmes
