Is that train always in the same spot?

I'm out of town for a couple weeks but, if nobody takes this before I get back...

It's there on a long term museum loan of some kind, but is technical able to be moved.

The roads out there are surely clear by now...

Bump for a great weather Saturday ride.

Do I need to post a better hint? GPS coordinates maybe?

I was considering going...but 2 hours will be a killer of a ride, and then 2 hours back.

The train is in Limon, on the railroad tracks at the Limon Heritage Museum.

Limon really isn't that far, but I can bring it in closer. I have another great spot in mind for you fair weather riders... .

I've been wanting in since you started this but was in Tucson. Now the weather is starting to cooperate and I might actually get a bike out this weekend. My house sits on a hill, the roads to my house are covered in snow and ice. But I might just make it out this weekend...

Our roads cleared yesterday, but we live on a cul-de-sac that doesn't get plowed and ices up. When all the connecting roads are clear, I just ride down the sidewalk 4-5 houses to get to the cleared road. My cool neighbors don't seem to mind.

Since at least one guy should be able to get out, I won't touch this and hope to see a new tag tomorrow...

I was already thinking of taking the sidewalk down the hill...

Leave the tag for now please.

Is it a race to see gets out there and tags it first or should we get a group together?

It's not as much a race to who finds the tag first, as a race to who posts it here first.
