Chuck, The Denver & New Orleans RR, ran very close to your house in fact. I was told, that this stuff came up on the railroad, but after the flood, that washed away the tracks (which were never replaced) that he lost his ability to ship his products back & forth affordably. Between that, and his failing health, it went downhill from there.

BTW. Rumor has it, that they actually lost a locomotive, just north of you, in Elbert, during that flood.

I sent you a pm. Yes. We'll have to get together with this.

I heard about that Locomotive story....just thought it was folklore. Funny cause my address is actually Elbert even though I'm 10 miles away. My town was once called Eastonville but it was ravaged back in the teens. It shows up on my old Powerlube maps but it certainly doesn't exist today. Didn't know any of that until my friend (the guy looking for the old lab) gave me the history of the area.

well today i helped one of my neighbors move some stuff out of his weekend place a couple of houses down.because of the economy hes gonna rent it.so we were takeing stuff down the block to the small resort that his dad owns,and putting it in the old garage.saw this hanging in the rafters.not petro,but i guess its from the mid 70s. i live on the chain o lakes and this is a painted sign that says official claiming station.these were used in winter for the ice fishing derby. .not real special,but a nice peice of local history


hey he says i can have it so the price i s right.now i just gotta go and get it out of the rafters
