ANCIENT ENGINE

Engine 168, a narrow gauge engine, pulled the first Denver & Rio Grande passenger train from Denver, Colorado to Ogden, Utah in May of 1883.  It was retired in 1933 after 50 years of continuous service.  The engine was presented to the City of Colorado Springs in 1938, and it now rests in Antlers Park in downtown Colorado Springs.

I have set up a photo-journal to showcase some of my husband's pictures.  Check it out when you have a chance, its worth the click:  PAPARRAZI BY PROXY
