Rio Grande Snow Freight DVD
On the weekend of May 8th and 9th, 1993, the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad operated several chartered freight trains for a select group of railfan photographers. The locomotives and equipment were all authentically lettered Rio Grande to perfectly recreate the imagery of a bygone era.
A number of trips were made over an eight-mile section of the line, featuring such famous landmarks as Jukes Tree and Lobato Trestle. The hard-working narrow-gauge 2-8-2 Mikado-type locomotives put on a memorable show featuring beautiful white exhaust plumes and great stack talk.
You'll see single-and double-headed freight trains powered by three different locomotives. Some runs even had a steam-powered mid-train helper!
As a special bonus, we've included John Briggs' 16mm color archive films depicting regular-service Rio Grande freight trains operating between Chama and Cumbres in the late 1950's. A superb hour of narrow-gauge steam acton!
