Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Freight Train (DVD)

http://pentrex.com/catsfdvd.html

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is one of America's most popular train rides. A remnant of the once-flourishing Rio Grande Narrow Gauge network, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic runs from Chama, New Mexico to Antonito, Colorado.

Over the years, fans have captured the operations of the narrow gauge in their photos of trains battling over Cumbres Pass. The past decade has seen several privately sponsored freight trains run especially for photographers on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic.

A run advertised as the final one took place in September of 1990. Jim Trowbridge organized a special photographers' freight train appropriately named the San Juan Express. This trip was unusual in that it covered the entire length of the railroad, showing the wide variety of scenery along the way. The great looking train and excellent weather conditions made this an exciting and memorable two day excursion.

If you missed the trip, Pentrex has your ticket to relive the glorious days of the Rio Grande freight train, battling its way up the 10,000-foot Cumbres Pass and winging its way over the longest narrow gauge railroad in America.
