West Side Lumber Co 9 pushes its train down toward the Devil's Gate Bridge.
West Side Lumber Co. 9 at Devil's Gate
West Side Lumber Co. 9, on the Georgetown Loop Railroad, is backing a train down the mainline from Devils Gate Station toward the Devils Gate Bridge. A small portion of the bridge can be seen toward the top of the photograph. The train is backed out of the station for a short bit so that passengers can see the bridge from the underside before the train pulls forward and eventually crosses over the bridge.

Photo taken on: September 1, 2013, at Georgetown, Colorado.

  2. Thanks, Shelly Gunderson​. To me, the image has a feeling as though it could have been taken a really long time ago.

  3. Yes, that's what I was getting at too. :-)

  4. Fantastic Tom Gatermann always love the offset boiler of a Shay SteamySunday

  5. This is a very striking image.  Well done.
