The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad from Antonito, Colorado to Chama, New Mexico is a living time machine were one can recreate scenes from the 1950's or before. In ôRio Grande Autumn Steam, enjoy freight trains that look just like the 1950s or 60s along this amazing 64 mile line. Watch a freight from Chama to Cumbres with steam locomotives on the front and rear, just like the Rio Grande Railroad used to do, followed by a second section with a single steamer. You'll also see a one engine freight out of Antonito.
Then, thrill to the action as a 30+ car freight travels from Antonito to Cumbres, with a mid-train helper, again just like the Rio Grande used to run through here.
A fantastic documentary that any steam locomotive enthusiast will enjoy.

Shot not long ago in September 2015 (A year after Greg Scholl Shot his hi definition footage of the C&TS), it features a great variety of special freights, including 463, and the K-26 class mikados whom they recently turned 90 years old. Also features the NKP 765 ambassador of steam preview at the end. Overall, Jarret did an excellent job with the footage, own narration and editing.

Excellent production, though the mileage posts were a bit confusing. Didn't seem to be in order, or were the shots no made in order? I don't know. Nevertheless a thoroughly enjoyable hour and a half. Lots of excellent shots of the locomotives and the scenery with lots of explanations.
