D&RGW train 142 coming out of Billies Mountain tunnel D&RGW train 142 comes out of Billies Mountain tunnel D&RGW train 142 above Thistle, Utah

To bypass the artificial dam and Lake Thistle, the railroad rerouted six miles of track and dug two tunnels under Billies Mountain. The first tunnel was completed on July 4 and the first train through the tunnel was train 142. The second tunnel was completed in August. We catch train 142 again as it comes out of one of the new tunnels above Thistle. If you look behind the house in the last shot you can see the original grade for the railroad. Disk 30
