Amherst Railway Society - meeting - March, 2020Date: Wednesday, March 11, 2020
Rocky Mountain High Gary Munsey
In October, 2011, Gary Munsey along with Amherst members Rob Cabrera, Jim Fenner, Dave Kmetz, John Peters, and Mike Walker made a nine-day rail-fan trip to Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Nebraska. The trip included Powder River Basin coal trains, street-running in Fort Collins, BNSF/UP “Joint Line" trains, as well as short line operator San Luis and Rio Grande. Colorado is also narrow-gauge steam country, so the trip included fan trips to the Durango & Silverton and Cumbres & Toltec railroads. On Wednesday, March 11, Gary will recount the nine-day rail adventure which included a side-trip to the Colorado Railroad Museum and a tour of Union Pacific’s main line between Cheyenne, Wyoming and North Platte, Nebraska. Gary Munsey is a retired PanAm dispatcher. Amherst Railway Society meetings are open to the public.
