Sure doesn't appear to be many riders & lack of scenery from other parts of the route from New Mexico may be part of the reason. Durango & Silverton is more scenic, but the Silverton end blocked off due to a washout on Northern end of the route.

The eastern half of the Route is mainly high desert with a few dormant volcanos in the area. The west end is in the mountains and forest.

The COVID-19 Maximum Crowd Limit… I think it was 10 passengers per car.

New Mexico has in place right now, a 14 day quarantine if you enter the State by any transportation mode… not good.

Yes, ORM did some runs today, and they got their COVID-19 rules to go by, with reduced seating.

I’m staying put… Ron’s Home Project’s 2020 is coming along just great.
