Ray can be seen through the windshield. The La Veta Depot is behind him. It used to be located at a siding called Fir, near the summit of La Veta Pass and was moved down to La Veta.

Will waits for the excursion to begin.

Seventeen motorcars made up our excursion. One motorcar had mechanical troubles and was unable to go.
We were to meet a train at Fir, so there was no time to work on it.

The excursion prepares to roll onto the main tracks to meet with vehicles containing representatives of the railroad.

This is Taffy. She's a Cocker Spaniel, and she rode over the pass.
