Como Boreas Pass Railroad Day Update
On Friday, July 23rd, while testing Klondike Kate, (first time in 2 years) a wedge connecting the right hand piston rod
to the crosshead failed (hidden fault) and as a result the cylinder head failed. We are
having a new one made. It is doubtful it will be ready by August 21st,
but Kate will steam again, and the Boreas Pass Railroad Day will go on!
The roundhouse, depot and all of the railroad property will be open to the public.
There will be handcar and speeder rides available and the concert in the roundhouse will be at 2:30.
The Denver Brass will be joined by the Celtic Colorado Bagpipers and Drums!
to Support the Repairs to Klondike Kate
We are looking for volunteers to help out at this year's event.
Two hour shifts in the depot, roundhouse, parking area and
general safety on the grounds are available.
If interested in helping out, please contact the volunteer coordinator, Tom Lawson at:
