Steam in Como!

Todd Hackett
There were a few minor hiccups, but it was amazing to see a steam locomotive running from the roundhouse to the depot in como, and turning on the turntable. Here are a few photos:

I still can't figure out how to embed YouTube Videos (the Embed tool doesn't seem to work). You can see it on YouTube.

Re: Steam in Como!

  Can anyone relate or direct me to the backstory on who/how Como
is being rebuilt ?  I have spent my whole life never dreaming anything
like this would ever happen.  Utterly amazing.  Kudos to all.  Wow.

And could someone please go straighten up that telegraph pole ?  If you
need glass or other parts, give me an address and I will send appropriate
materials.

Congratulations to all involved! It is wonderful to see the town of Como returning to its status as a railroad town. Sorry to have missed the grand unveiling but I will certainly be out for steam ups in the future. Until then I will be wrapping up the summer season down in Durango.

Oh man, do I wish I could have been there!

(Is that a nice fresh weld-bead I see on the bottom of that switch-stand?)

Cheers,
Jeff.

Hi South Park,

  Thanks, Tim.  Is Dr. Brantigan a hands-on participant ?  Never met
the guy or know much beyond the name.  How did the Como group
come to own No. 4 ?  I am so pleased to know this place is being
pulled back from such a forlorn state.  Simply wonderful.  All involved,
cut yerself an extra slice of raisin pie !

Re: Steam in Como!

  "Chuck bought No. 4" ....  how does one go about buying
something like No. 4 ?  I suspect Morse Bros. doesn't keep a
large stock of used steamers in their stock anymore.  I also
suspect it would take a fair heap of green rectangles or "12
Easy Payments" to make one "all yours".  Does he pick up a
wrench or a shovel ?  Clearly this man is a saint, just for giving
financial support to save so much in Como.  I just am not finding
any backstory on a guy I'd like to meet and shake his hand
and thank in person for things I read that he has made possible.
Would like to know more ....

Sounds like personal questions best directed to him.
