Well, they're not technically photos, but movies!

I finally got around to posting on youtube,
videos of four great Colorado railroads.

Unfortunately, nothing like Durango, yet,
but rather the Georgetown Loop, Leadville Colorado and Southern,
the Pike's Peak Cog railroad, and the Royal Gorge Route.

While I am happy with the photos I took,
the videos in the movie will need to be redone eventually,
since they were grainy.

But, I got a new tripod,
and I will have a new camera next time I'm in the area,
so maybe better video clips?

Anyways, you can see the videos as a playlist here:

Just select "play all" and you can forward to whatever you want to see.

Also note that most of these shots were from the train,
instead of on the ground like I would prefer.
But there was so much private property, no trespassing,
or for that matter any good roads on top of a mountain,
or at the bottom of a canyon, so no drive by's.

Sorry, best I could do at the time.

I'm also the kind of photographer who uses  :dt:  :dt:  !

When I go back,
my next set will be Durango, La Veta, and Toltec routes,
maybe even cripple creek.

That won't be until next summer though.

Found this post,
and thought that the heading 'The Colorado Experience' was appropriate.

Here is a video of Leadville in 1915:
