WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Organizers hope the train - which made its inaugural trek last year delivering 320 passengers to and from Denver's Union Station to Pueblo's Union Depot for the Colorado State Fair - will only be derailed a year due to this year's Democratic and Republican national conventions.
The Democratic Convention is scheduled Aug. 25-28 in Denver and the Republican Convention is scheduled Sept. 1-4 in Minneapolis.
This 136th annual Colorado State Fair lands in the middle of the action, scheduled Aug. 22-Sept. 1.
Problem? The vintage cars hitched to last year's Colorado State Fair Express will be used for various activities during both conventions. - Pueblo Chieftan
And the Democrats aren't the only ones to blame. The trains are going up to St. Paul for the Republican Convention immediately after the Democratic Convention.
