🚂 Looking for volunteers for a Half-Day Buena Vista Depot/Caboose Work-Painting Session, Wed. June 13, 8:30 AM. Bringing a paintbrush is helpful, but not necessary. For more information, please contact Vic Kuklin: 719-395-5758.

🚂 Tentative dates for 2018 volunteer track laying schedule: Sunday June 3rd thru Saturday June 9th, Sunday June 24th, Saturday July 14th, Sunday July 29th, and Saturday August 11th.

🚂 Tentative dates for 2018 Klondike Kate operating schedule: June 30th and July 1st, August 18th and 19th, September 1st and 2nd.

Due to insurance requirements (and common sense) all track laying volunteers must review the following safety rules, watch the SAFETY VIDEO and sign the volunteer signup and liability waiver form. ALL volunteer workers will be required to comply. Upon completion each volunteer will be issued a validation card good for the calendar year. The video and forms will be available in Como for last minute arrivals.

We also have a link to a historic D&RG safety video. While not required this one is much more "entertaining", and worth your time.

Hard hats, gloves and safety glasses will be provided, along with lunch. If you have your own you are welcome to use them. Steel toe safety shoes are not required but if you have them you should bring them. We hope to lay another 1,000 feet of track this year and look forward to seeing you in Como!
