Take a unique journey on the rails of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in the Rocky Mountains, as we view a steam passenger train from in front of the train. Through special arrangements with the railroad we chartered a passenger train, and an escort train to use as a camera platform and videotaped the entire trip from Chama, New Mexico to Cumbres, Colorado. where the Pass is reached at an elevation of 10,015 feet. Our train resembles the former Rio Grande San Juan passenger train complete with authentic lettering on K-36 locomotive #484 as we view this awesome sight climbing through the Rockies. As we enjoy the scenery and natural train sounds, we will point out a few of the sights along the way, but you will see the train nearly the entire journey. The trip is incredible as you climb a 4% grade and into the snowcover during this late spring run that was made before the tourist season began. You will hear load exhaust from the 484 and watch the entire route unfold behind you. This is definitely a unique experience and one that only Greg Scholl Video Productions has available. The tape is quite mesmerizing to say the least!

In this 1998 videotape/2004 DVD, this entire eastbound train ride on the Cumbres & Toltec from Chama New Mexico to 10,015 feet cumbres Colorado was filmed in may of 1997 during production of Rocky Mountain Snow plow & First train to Toltec. Many locations are shown including Chama yard, Fred Jukes Tree, the bridge over the Chama River, the narrows near Lobato lake, Wolf creek trestle, the highway 17 crossing 3 times, Dalton, Cresco water tower, Hamilton�s point, coxo telephone booth & windy point. Overall, the late John Edward hingsbergen did a fantastic job narrating this program.
