    Nearly a month and a half before it's scheduled to pull its first revenue train of the year (the Friends 463 charter out of Antonito, CO, on the 15th), 463 has been moved from its restoration home in Monte Vista, CO, over the last week, and the final portion of the move is expected today (Friday, 30 Mar 2012). Just thought I'd share the good news. Also, if you are still interested in the photo charter or following night shoot ($75) but haven't gotten your tickets yet, I've heard rumors that a few of each are still available. Call the Friends at 505-880-1311 for reservations. - NDHolmes

    RTD has announced they'll start testing clearances on the new West Line light rail route this week. The track is apparently complete, but the catenary is yet unfinished. So, a standard light rail car will be drug along by a large RTD hyrail truck. Testing will begin from the junction near the Auraria Station at 0700h on Thursday, 22 Mar 2012, and projections are that it could take days to cover the whole route if clearance issues are found. The full story can be found [here in the Denver Business Journal]. - NDHolmes

    Goosefest 2012 - a celebration of the RGS "Galloping Geese" - will take place at the Colorado Railroad Museum on June 16-17, 2012. Officially, their website only says that the Museum's Geese (2, 6, and 7) will be there. That said...

    The proverbial cat's out of the bag, however. CRRM has worked out a deal to transport the Knotts Berry Farm motor - Goose 3 - from California to Golden for this event. They plan to bring Gooses 1, 4, and 5 as well, making this the first time since the end of the RGS that all six real geese (2-7) will be in the same spot - and the spot-on reproduction of #1 will be there as well.

    To make this happen, it costs money. As you all know, fuel isn't getting any cheaper, and trucks don't run for free. Bill Gould, Operations Manager for CRRM, has put out the public request for donations to help defray the cost of making this happen. Remember, CRRM is a 501c3 organization, so anything you donate is deductable. [See Bill's post] to find out details of how to contribute to this historic event.
