Today is the last trip.
I'm sure many of you have seen the Royal Gorge and maybe taken a ride on the Royal Gorge Scenic Railway. This was sold back in 2010 to one of the Koch boys.
This article offers up a lot of good info on the history of this and some of the circumstances leading to today. The owner had been at it 32 years for one thing.
CANON CITY — The Royal Gorge Scenic Railroad will make its last run Sept. 30, ending a 32-year career for its operator, Greg Tabuteau.The railroad and neighboring Buckskin Joe, along with 806 acres of land, were sold in 2010 to billionaire William Koch. Buckskin Joe's Old West buildings were moved to Koch's ranch in Gunnison County for use as a private museum.
These Koch boys remind me of this episode from the Next Generation titled "The Most Toys". One of the better ones.
