D&RGW PA1 6011 Editors Pick!        
D&RGW PA1 6011 at Salida, Colorado on August 25, 1965, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Number 6011 was built in April 1947 as D&RGW PA1 601A (c/n 74686), was renumbered to 6011 March 6, 1950, traded to EMD on an SD45 order December 20, 1967. It is seen here having arrived in Salida as Train #1, The Royal Gorge. Train #1 left Denver at 9:00 AM with a couple of cars from CB&Q's Denver Zephyr attached. The Zephyr cars were cut off at Colorado Springs and the train continued on to Pueblo where it met its counterpart, Train #2. Train #2 will pick up the Zephyr cars left by #1 and return them to Denver. This train continued on to Salida and will return as #2 departing Salida the next day at 9:00 AM.

Robert Farkas General Excellent! The PA's paint scheme or lack thereof makes this a great piece of history, and the technical quality of the slide equals the rarity. Thanks for sharing this. 2/2/2011 7:28:59 PM
John Jornod General I was looking at PA's and noticed the picture you posted in December has a telephone pole some shadow and one less mountain bidding a locomotive. What program do you use to touch up these pho? It is so excellent I never would have guessed it had I not seen the other photo. 9/21/2014 2:52:46 PM
