While the equipment may have been different, it was pretty cool having the Ski Train back, if only for two days. It is hard to believe that as of this picture, it has been nearly six years since that final run of the original Ski Train. Here, Amtrak's special run of the Ski Train (which included seven Superliners) emerges from the east portal of the Moffat Tunnel.

Well said, Sean. Talk between Amtrak, Winter Park, and Union Pacific are proceeding, so I think there is a good chance we will get the train for an entire season next year. At least one season anyone.
