October 3rd was the last day for Steam Engines on the Georgetown Loop Railraod. I got the honor to ride the last train up the hill and it turned out to be quite a show. The train was pulled by Shays #12 and #14 and they wailed with all their heart as they pulled us towards Silver Plume. It was an experience I will remember for a long time. I did catch some video which you can view below. This is our first time sharing video over our web site, so hopefully we won't have any problems.
Engine #40 starting up the hill. I'm about 200 yards away and the echo in the valley is incredible. Please note that I sacrificed video quality for the sound, by far the best part, listen to the video long after the train has left the screen. If you have stereo on your computer turn it up so the people in the next cubicle hear it to!

Engine #40 crossing the Devils Gate Bridge. Again, not the best video. Two interesting sounds. The chuff you hear is from the engine in the video. The whistle you hear is from the two shays coming down the hill about 2 miles to my back. And yes, those are dogs you hear, they were in the back of a pickup right next to me.

Shay's #12 and #14 pulling 9 cars. This is at the very start of the run, you can see Devil's Gate bridge 100' above them. I was standing a few feet from the track, this is a near life-changing event to experience.
