Transcontinental railway scenic byway

Has anyone ever attempted this during the winter. I've dreamed of an expedition from the Golden Spike memorial to Wendover. Has anyone ever did this run?

Re: Transcontinental railway scenic byway

Apparently no one has been out that way in the winter. The chapter has done the Lucern cut-off multiple times, but not in winter, at least not in the last 3 years. The trip usually involved returning that way with an overnight stop. Sorry I can't help you any more than that.

Thanks SandySteve. I'm thinking about some winter wheeling and will continue to see if this is possible.

Its open all winter but travel with friends. It can get drifted in and muddy depending on conditions.

Re: Transcontinental railway scenic byway

Let us know when you plan on the run and perhaps others would like to join in. BTW, tell Jerry I said HI.

I just spoke to mom and Jerry as they head back to St George. He was happy to get your howdy.

Re: Transcontinental railway scenic byway

I've been out there a few times. Be sure to take another vehicle. Depending on weather it's either gooey muddy and passable or deep snow and you spend your time stuck. I'd go with you but I'm in the process of moving.
