For the Coaster/Railfans

I was looking through the
North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA)
website and found the following photos. Both were shot in May 2003. Can you guess where they were taken? (pretty easy)

That's pretty neat. I guess there aren't a lot of options for those with a narrow gauge car.

Not only is it the CP&LE, but their running the opposite direction the trains normally do. Photo #1 is the point where we'd start whistling for the Frontier Trail crossing (at least it was thirty years ago) heading for the Midway Station. The speeder is going towards Funnytown as we used to call it.

Yeah, Mantis @ the 2nd pic kinda gives away the location.

Backwards is no big deal, two people can pick up a speeder and turn it around. They weigh about as much as a small riding mower.

Did you know there really are 48 skeletons in Boneville?

I got bored once and counted them all. But I don't remember if the hands (yes, they're only hands) helping with the water pump by Mantis counts. I'm such a dork.

I enjoy that you edited this post to point out that it's not, in fact, a mailto:: link rather than typing out the two letter word "at."

You mean 47 skeletons, remember that one skeleton gets shot and killed as the train goes by it.
