PVWRR spokesman Chris Rand says that during the interim, his club's obsession will mostly stay in place and see only slight disruption, thanks to cooperation by the developer, and that if all goes according to plan, the most noticeable changes when the railroad reopens will be additions to the layout and better visibility for the public.
"For some short-term hardship, we see it as a long-term gain. We hope the rest of Denver embraces the project, as well as our little piece of it." Rand's motto? "See you in the summer of 2014!"
