Through the weeds not around them.

eptember 1965. A Silverton branch work train heads north through the Animas Valley. The track here was through a marshy area subject to spring flooding. Today the track has been raised substantially, ballasted with crushed rock, and the 70 pound rail replaced with 90. The title is a parody by DRGW engineer Andy Payne of the old DRGW slogan "through the Rockies not around them".
