I have another surprise for you at the end of this post. But first, let take a look at something that arrived in front of Union Station on Saturday. RTD set up a temporary display of a model of a commuter rail car to get feedback from the public. The model is inside the structure you see in the photo below. I encourage you to drop in to see the car, wander around inside of it, check out the seats and luggage areas, and provide your feedback to RTD.
Here’s shot of the inside of the model which is about one-third the size of a real car.
Please see our Denver Union Station page at JobSiteVistor.com for more photos of the inside of the structure where there are, among others things, graphic explanations of the the car and how it differs from a light rail car.
Now for the surprise I promised. During recent excavations, crews uncovered the home of a million year old man and awaken him for a first time in several hundred thousand years. I bumped into him today as he was wandering around the construction site looking a bit dazed and confused. He turned down my offer to buy him a beer, but he did agree to some new clothes. I think he looks pretty sharp considering his age. Be on the lookout for him if you get to the site soon.
Okay, so there might be some exaggeration in my claim. In reality, I happened across a photo shoot for a music video, and this good looking guy agreed to pose for me. If I had offered a beer, he and the others probably would have accepted.
