Wayne Sittner- How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Every summer we go out to Gunnison, CO to visit my older daughter and family. I always make it a point to take at least one day to trace a bit more of the old narrow gauge lines with my son-in-law Jeff. Over the years I've seen the Salida to Montrose segment of the D&RGW as well as the branch from Gunnison to Crested Butte. This year we covered Ohio City to the Alpine Tunnel on the DSP&P. The surveying, engineering and construction of this line makes you truly appreciate what the old railroaders accomplished with just dynamite, pick and shovel and teams of mules. Circa 1880!

Enjoy, Wayne!
