New diesel and snowplow for Pikes Peak arrived.

At the end of the video, while inside the shop,
there is an apparent down slope on the tracks.

Hopefully a video effect, because it can't be a good thing.

That was neat to watch.

My wife and I took a week-long tourist RR trip to CO with a tour group in 2019
(oddly, only myself and one other guy were actual train fans)
and we went up Pikes Peak in a Jeep, as the RR was torn out at that point,
and the locals didn't know if it was ever coming back.

I so wish they could have done this work about 3 years earlier,
but maybe someday I'll be back in that area to ride it...
