C&TS and D&S October 2016 - A Life Chasing Trains

The week of October 3-7 was a busy one for me on the narrow gauge, five days with four classes of ex-DRGW engines.    On Monday Rich Tower sponsored a "stock train" from Antonito to Chama behind the 315.  On Tuesday and Wednesday the Friends of the C&TS sponsored photo freights, Tuesday being two "Cumbres turns" with the 463, and Wednesday a long freight with the 489 from Cumbres to Osier and return.  Thursday and Friday were spent on the D&S with the 473 pulling a "Silverton mixed" with an overnight in Silverton.  The fall color was magnificent, as was the weather.
