Rick Mills and Phyllis Carlson pause during a busy day – Friday May 18th – as three busloads of eager railroad buffs came to town to immerse themselves in.....railroading!
|Rick Mills and Terry Sandstrom|
In the afternoon, they converged on the Dawes County Museum, where director Phyllis Carlson and a bevy of volunteers hosted the group.
Of particular importance at the museum was a wonderful new exhibition of railroad photographs, artifacts and memorabilia recently donated by Chadron native Terry Sandstrom, now of Wheatland, Wyoming. Sandstrom, wearing the ball cap in the above photo, is shown visiting with Mills at the museum.
We captured a few photos of the roundhouse and museum events and have posted them in a linked gallery. While not all images have yet been posted, and many have not yet been identified and need captions, we thought you might like a sneak preview. You'll find it in our C&NW Gallery.
