The National Narrow Gauge Convention this year is in Denver August 29th through September 2nd. Although many members will be attending/hosting the convention, the Denver, South Park and Pacific Historical Society hopes to have at least one Como building, depot or roundhouse, open on Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd. Currently there are no plans to operate the steam locomotive. The locomotive is planned to operate for Boreas Pass Railroad Day on Saturday, August 19th. As plans for the convention become more firm this thread will be updated.

During the event yesterday I was able to get two others to commit to help on Saturday and Sunday, 9/2 and 9/3. We talked to DSP&PHS society president Bob Schoppe and he agreed that we can now staff the depot and roundhouse both days. We don't have exact times now but we will be staffed all day. I doubt that the locomotive will be operating. I will provide more details as we figure things out.

I have just learned that steam locomotive #4 will be operating on Saturday, 9/2, from 1-4 pm. It may also operate on Sunday.

I have more details about this coming weekend, September 2nd and 3rd, in Como.

Steam locomotive #4 will be steamed up sometime on Saturday and moved onto the turntable. This will allow the roundhouse stall #5 track to be leveled. We are looking for volunteers to help with the track work. After the work is completed I don't know if the engine will continue to be operated that day.

The engine is not planned to be operated on Sunday.

On both Saturday and Sunday the roundhouse and depot will be open for viewing.
