Personal favorites - A Life Chasing Trains



Not much snow on the ground at Antonito, but a flanger spreader train had preceeded this train over Cumbres, and it was obvious from the snow covered engines at Chamalater that night that there was plenty of snow on Cumbres. A few weeks later OY would make the last DRGW rotary run over Cumbres. Once the train left Antonito it traveled through very isolated country with no paved roads or towns until it reached Chama, 60 miles away over 10,000 foot Cumbres pass.  December 18, 1961.
