Fascinating stuff Ray and a great source of scenic modelling inspiration.

It got me interested in the area and, as a Brit who is most unlikely to ever see it in the flesh, I thought this video was a marvellous adjunct to your "today" views.

Done in 2008, the ride through the gorge is spectacular and the creaking and cracking as the short train crosses the Goat Canyon Trestle is a real reminder of the potentially unstable nature of railroad structures built in these kind of locations.

An hour's viewing well worth the time for anyone interested and unfamiliar with the site and a return journey to give another perspective available to follow.

Thanks Ray.  Nicely done.  I enjoyed all three as I am very familiar with the SD&E and have been to the Museum at El Campo a couple of times, but time and company never allowed for the jaunt out there.  At this point in time I will never get to Goat Canyon, so this is a little slice of heaven for me.  Thank you.
