Misc. Photos and Stuff

A few from the past!  I was sorting through an old bunch of CD Archives… The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.  Once upon a time I had this as wallpaper…but in a much large format!  It was scanned from a calendar photo. A bad way to start a Monday. And you women don’t think […]

Day 032

Long, long ago, in a Fort far, far away…I got to drive the train! Fort Steele, BC, circa 1968? 69? Unfortunately, it was a static display… ~Curtis in (now…) /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 226

(I just noticed the photos here are all labeled for day 227…they are really Day 226’s…) I took a walk along the River’s Edge Trail today.  I decided to try the panorama feature on my cellphone’s camera.  I usually just take several photos and stitch them together, but I thought I’d try it this way. […]

Day 225

I had to go back up to Shelby to get the Dailylife Wife off the train last week.  It was a little smokey going up and pulling in to town. Even though I was there a few minutes early, the train had already pulled in to the station. Up and over the viaduct! She was […]

Day 59

Industrial spur tracks in the snow. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

End of the line on the new industrial spur. Curvy spur! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 23

Early morning coffee and computers after the snow started again.  With my fancy new lens! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 17

I was down by the River today after dropping Toots at home after her school got out, and while there wasn’t much in the way of waterfowl, I did find this herd of deer on the new industrial spur, a couple hundred feet north of the railroad crossing signals. This is a three photo panorama, […]

Day 366

The last light of 2016. From the 1911 railroad tunnel between Belt and Great Falls. A well traveled door. Some people are saying they are glad it is over. It wasn’t too bad, if you ask me.  It is ending better than it started, anyway! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 342

A week or two ago, while it was still sunny, they put new crossing lights on the railroad crossing for the new industrial spur.  It looks like it could be waiting on crossing barrier/arms, too.  I have yet to see any train on it, beyond a couple of gandy dancer cars working on the track. […]
