Our paper newsletter, the ColoRail Passenger has a new editor, Chris Spitzer. He takes over from Robert Rynerson, who served as ColoRail’s editor since Issue #1 in August 1988 when what was labeled “an ad hoc group” was formed to fight City/developer plans to evict rail service from Denver Union Station. Originally, the newsletter — typewritten on an electric typewriter — had no name. The eventual name was suggested by member Ron Vander Kooi.
Rynerson previously edited the Alberta, Canada rail advocates’ newsletter. His articles and photographs have been published in six countries and in a variety of media formats. He plans to continue writing and editing his history website: www.berlin1969.com.
