Travel to New Mexico and Colorado and see passenger train operations on the Denver and Rio Grande Western’s narrow gauge between 1947 and 1966. First we see rare footage of the San Juan that was the daily regular train from Alamosa to Durango. We see both onboard and some trackside views of this train that was discontinued in January of 1951. Then we see some excursion trains operated over the system ranging from 1956 through 1966, the final year of excursions on the railroad over Cumbres Pass. There is approximately 10 minutes of rare San Juan footage in this show from 2 different sources. This entire video is material we have gathered over many years from different cameramen. We ride the San Juan in the winter, then see one with extra cars since a group was riding. After that the same photographer shoots some images trackside in a few spots.
