Join us for a rare treat as we ride the cab of K-36 number 489 from Antonito, Colorado to Sublette, NM some 26 miles. You will be treated to views out the front from the fireman’s seat as well as the engine crew running the engine and shoveling coal into the firebox. The sound and views are unusual, so don’t miss out on a special video.

You’ll see inside the cab and the gauges before we leave town, then watch the engineer get the train started on our journey. There is plenty of action as the fireman hand-shovels the coal into the firebox as needed, and you see that the fuel is spread around to various sides of the firebox for better heating. Most of the view is looking ahead from the fireman’s seat, plus of course views of the engineer and fireman at work. You really get a nice feel for what it is like to ride inside as a crewmember of a real steam engine doing its job on a daily basis. The sound is nice and the view is different from the normal ride.

    A great shot into the lives of modern day steam railroaders on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. This is what steam railroading is all about. See something not many people get to see and understand these days.

    This DVD was Recorded At The Same Exact Time The Riding The C&TS Program Was Made, But Instead its an Extended Version Of a Cab Ride Of The Engine From Antonito To Sublette Through The Flat Desert, As Well As Climbing up some hills.
