<div>Hey guys!</div><div><br></div><div>Just posted about 50 photos of the DRGW Leadville branch taken this past Thursday 10/12/17, the rails still run right up to the football field at Lake County HS.. Hiked most of the branch and into the Eilers yard. Got some Malta photos as well. Speaking of Malta there is a searchlight on a pole in the yard. Any idea what it was for?</div><div><br></div><div>For whatever reason the&nbsp;county has blocked the rails on each side of county road 36 by placing a concrete barrier directly across the rails. My guess is to keep the ATV&#39;s out. These just went in on Tuesday or Wednesday. </div><span><p><br></p><p>The telephone shed at the Eilers switch is still in place, and it&#39;s wooden! Could have sworn there was an additional metal shed here as well the last time I hiked this but if there was it&#39;s long gone now. There is still some penciled in stuff on the walls in the phone shed&nbsp;from when it was in use.&nbsp;In the 8 years since I&#39;ve last hiked the branch the derail is GONE that was in place just past the Eilers switch. Wonder if the UP grabbed it or a railfan? The switch is still spiked and locked open towards the yard at Eilers. Some of the switches in the yard have been pulled up but the rails remain. </p><p><br></p><p>The speeder shed at Malta has been torched and the wood is all but gone however the metal has held up fine. Some more DRGW penciled in graffiti on the walls at the old shed down there. Some of the rails on the track that used to hold the DRGW storage boxcar at Malta must have come off the pass and are the most worn I have ever seen! Date looks to be 1902.</p><p><br></p><p>Enjoy the photos!</p><p><br></p><p>Sean</p><p>Leadville, CO<br class="yui-cursor"></p></span>
