Good progress on the ex-D&RGW Bunk Car 04432 has meant that we were able to move the car from its work site, south of Durango, to Silverton. It will be used to accommodate the crews working on the 315 specials this weekend. The car arrived in Silverton of the 8/15/16. Some work remains to be done but it’s hoped that by the first snows of the winter the Bunk Car will be complete. For more details about the cars progress click HERE.
