Volume 22, Number 3 of the Prospector, our professionally produced and beautifully illustrated quarterly magazine featuring the finest work of historians and other experts on all aspects of Rio Grande Railroad was published in Quarter 3 of 2023 calendar year.
Tom Hogan (incoming Prospector Editor) & I bring you in this issue another of the late Mike McLaughlin’s short stories, this one on the unusual interchange with the Salt Lake Garfield & Western. Next up in the third section of Russ Sharp’s Narrow Gauge Photo Gallery where on June 13, 1968, he chased one train with 493 on the lead and 483 cut in mid-train. Bringing up the markers is Jeff Simley’s modeling article detailing his building of an HO scale Rio Grande deck truss bridge at milepost 233.9. We hope you enjoy this issue.
We hope you will enjoy all three articles in this issue of Volume 22. – Dave Lotz, Editor
