Cheraw Wolverines

Hello Bob,
I am sending you the pictures that I took on our recent train ride to Raton, New Mexico from La Junta, Colorado.  I would first like to say how much the kids enjoyed themselves on your particular trip.  The parents were very happy to see how professional you and your crew were with the children and adults.  It was a pleasure to be able to relax and see the different parts of the train. Please give your crew a big pat on the back and thank them from us here in Cheraw,CO for the outstanding job they did.  Here are a few of the pictures that were taken on the trip.
