See the C&T through both freight and passenger service. Two disc Set. On Volume 1 we go back to 1990 for the San Juan Express, a privately sponsored freight train, that ran an unusual 2-day excursion covering the entire line from Chama, New Mexico to Antonito, Colorado. Led by Baldwin-built 2-8-2 Mikado, the train with its vintage freight cars tackled the four percent grade from Chama to Cumbres Pass (elevation 10,015 feet” and then continued to Antonito. Stops were scheduled to allow photographers an opportunity to capture run-bys at the most scenic spots.

Volume 2 features passenger trains on the C&T. Mikado steam locomotives built in the mid 1920s power the vintage equipment for these passenger trains.

Daily, during summer months, they struggle up the four percent grade to the 10,015-foot summit of Cumbres Pass. You’ll ride in the cab and witness the expertise of the engineer and fireman who control these locomotives as they blast upgrade. Numerous run-bys highlight the power and beauty of a C&TS doubleheader at many scenic spots along the 64-mile line.

  1. Chase

    These are two great videos to have in your vast railroad collection of videos. Both have real neat footage of operations on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad on the regular passenger trains and a photo charter freight train with locomotive 488.
