Likely due to the "Polar Vortex" that's laid an icy grip on the nation of late, here are a couple shots of the title train as it traversed Oreapolis NE late this morning. Second shot is of one of the wrapped cars that will be used on the resurrected Ski Train (Denver Co-Winter Park Co) beginning Jan 7 of the new year.

The Ski Train will stop at the Winter Park Ski Resort at Winter Park, CO as before. The big change will be the addition of a proper ADA-compliant station platform at the resort, instead of the simple paved (or gravel) area that had served in place of a platform.

Nice catch Ed. Looks like the different cars have different working on them. I think the one the other day said "Your Link to Winter Park Resort"

A friend of mine said they spent over a million on the new platform, heated and everything.
