Title:  Georgetown Loop Railroad
Description:  Date Approximate - A downhill trip on 12 at the loop always involves cooking with the Dean Gordon (me) in the left seat. That days menu included pineapple and chicken for the pineapple princess. This would be my last day firing the 12 for the season. The spatula still hangs in her cab. I cooked just about everything on the backhead and even baked cookies and cinnaomons rolls for our crew of 8 on weekends. I miss the 12.
