Review of Cab Ride Over La Veta Pass 2-DVD Set Sierra to near Fort Garland

 4.5 of 5 (2)
Enjoy the view from the locomotive on a rare daylight freight train over Colorado's beautiful La Veta Pass.

Long considered the D&RGW's "hidden" mountain pass due to mostly night trains for the last 50 years.

In Part 1 Sierra to La Veta, you enjoy the climb up and over La Veta, with 2.5 percent grades climbing and 3 percent grades going back down. The scenerey is spectacular, and the railroading is too!.

In Part 2, La Veta to Near Ft. Garalnd, ride the head end of a light unit move from La Veta to near Ft. Garland over Colorado's long hidden La Veta Pass. If you have part one, you'll want this part as well, because the scenery is great in either direction!

As a special bonus, you'll also be on board for the arrival into Alamosa!.
