One of just a handful of AlCo FA locomotives still working. :D
What's the story with the huge house on the west side of the lake? Is that the Blairsden house?
December 2009...I wonder if the old Mercedes is still there?
The house has been moved, right? Its like a half mile south of here now, and a few hundred feet further inland.
I'm not entirely sure if it continued or not. But there is a phone number on their website if you wish to call and ask. I'm sure somebody there knows the answer. It was a nice train ride and I highly recommend it if you live in Colorado (or if you visit).
Southern Pacific 4449, one of the largest steam-powered locomotives still operating in the world.
I wish Portland got snow more often. :D
I have no idea how old the "house" is, but what you see on the photo is only a smidgen of the property. It is certainly a fantastic mansion - I love the architecture of it.
The trestle was replaced beginning in Thanksgiving 2008 and was completed summer of 2009. I think the old bridge timber trestle was built sometime in the early 1900s and lasted until it was replaced with the structure above.
Sadness. They should have kept it as a hotel.
