This program looks at two 50th anniversary photo specials on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. The first in August of 2018 commemorated the last freights over Cumbres Pass using two of the K-36 locomotives. The first day had a 2-engine freight climbing the 4% grade from Chama to Cumbres, while the second day featured a rare doubleheader running west out of Antonito. The second special took place in October of 2022 and celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Toltec Rattler: the first ever photo freight on the C&TS. You'll see 2 days of action with locomotive #484, right after the first major snow of the season.

Total running time: 1 hour 46 minutes
