My wife and I visited Silverton, Colorado on our trip home after attending the 2012 Union Pacific Historical Society convention held at North Platte, Nebraska. While at the Silverton Depot of the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad we watched the arrival of several passenger trains coming from Durango. Soon after each arrival, a track speeder putt-putted up to the depot and stopped nearby. Each train is followed by a track-worker riding on a speeder. The purpose of this is to inspect the right-of-way for fires or safety issues before the next train uses the ROW. It is obvious the speeders must be removed from the tracks from time to time to get out the way of approaching trains and also perhaps reverse the speeder’s direction of travel. These photographs show the time honored method of doing this.
