In the spring of 2014, Denver & Rio Grande Western 2-8-0 #315 operated a rare 3-day photo charter on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. This excursion featured #315 pulling a Rio Grande work train, with Pile Driver OB being steamed up and used along the railroad right-of-way. In addition to the work train, #315 would also pull a mixed freight during the 2nd day of the charter.|
Starting in Antonito, CO, we'll cover the east side of railroad - travelling as far west as Los Pinos and spending 2 nights in the high country at Osier. In addition to plenty of runbys at iconic locations, you'll see inside the pile driver as the Friends of the C&TS crew provide a demonstration with OB at the Big Horn wye. We'll also cover some entirely new locations on this historic and scenic narrow gauge line.
In addition to the 3-day event, this program covers a pre-charter doubleheader to move freight cars to Antonito for the charter. You'll see K-27 2-8-2 #463 and K-36 2-8-2 #488 on the 4%
