When I was small, my family took a trip to Newcastle to see my Uncle Ralph Elkington. He was managing an effort to harvest beetle killed trees and replant large areas around there.

We took the DRG&W Royale Gorge Route out to Glenwood Springs and the Moffat Tunnel Route back. My dad worked for the C&NW. I think we took that to Chicago and then to Omaha and then got on the CB&Q. We rode that to Denver and got on the DRG&W. That was 1948. There was still a lot of narrow gauge along the route then.

In 1952, we did a repeat performance only got on the CB&Q in Chicago.
