On February 23 and 24, 2009 Dave and Jean Gross sponsored their seventh winter charter on the Durango and Silverton, running from Durango to just north of Cascade.  The day previous the D&S sponsored their own winter photo special.Monday was wet, overcast, not particularly cold, and the engine had a serious steam leak, but all that produced very wintry looking pictures.  Tuesday was wall to wall sun.
