    Dear friends,The old DVTalk campsite served us well since 2001. Over time, however, our one-of a-kind, custom programmed message board has become archaic and cumbersome, and it lacks the standard features of other, more contemporary message boards. Therefore, the time has come to move DVTalk to a more modern, better equipped campsite. All visitors wishing to post must register.

Cool! Part of the skinny highway is the current Dolomite Loop Road. There was one point the train crossed over one of two spurs - the spur to Dolomite or the spur to nearby Mock. Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the rails to both spurs still could be seen in the pavement and the painted RR Crossing marks on the pavement were still visible.

The episode is titled "Wedding of the Waters". It was about the 3 day event in 1937 to celebrate the opening of Hwy 190. Last few minutes has the narrow gauge steam engine being paced into Keeler by a motorcade on a very skinny highway.
It is on youtube:
