The first season of the Winter Park Express was a big success. ColoRail leaders traveled on the last trip on March 26. They honored Gary DeFrange, the outgoing CEO of Winter Park ski resort with a custom train host parka, poster and letter of thanks.
Gary, a ColoRail member, played a crucial role in getting the train going. Amtrak has committed to continuing the WPE in 2018. ColoRail coordinated the train host program and presented passengers with a special postcard and pen on the return trips March 25th and 26th.
