The Cumbres and Toltec Railroad stretches 64 miles and features a variety of trackage and scenery. We are trackside to see a lot of different views starting in Antonito and progressing to Cumbres via Osier. After watching a few scenes down toward Chama, we video trains in a westerly direction from Chama.|
Sometimes there are two different scenes at the same location, made on different days with different locomotive numbers. Three different K-36 lomomotives are featured in this show. There is nice variety here, and the 4% grade from Chama to Cumbres produces some great sights and sounds as the trains work hard to make the 4% grade over Cumbres Pass. We will also see one train that has mechanical issues and the employees make a fix on the spot. This show is full of great runbys in superb scenery with great locomotives that have a superb sound to them. 97 Minutes
