It’s #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we are sharing home movie footage from Colorado Railroad Museum volunteer George Lawrence. George was trackside with his camera to capture the the crew as they prepared the powerful K-36 steam locomotive, engine no. 481, for an excursion in the late 1970s!
