Trains and Cumbres & Toltec announce epic narrow gauge photo charter
Posted by Brian Schmidt on Thursday, February 01, 2018 12:19 PM

WAUKESHA, Wis. — Trains magazine and the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad are pleased to announce a special photo freight event Aug. 25-26, 2018, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the last revenue freight on the legendary Rio Grande narrow gauge.

This two-day event will feature a 20-car freight pulled by double-headed Rio Grande K-36 Mikado steam locomotives, including No. 484 from the last run in 1968, and another K-36, which will be presented as No. 483 for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Participants will enjoy multiple photo runbys at exclusive locations, two hot lunches and a prime rib dinner with entertainment at Cumbres Pass on Saturday night, a night photo session on Friday, and the splendor of the Rio Grande narrow gauge in the San Juan Mountains. Every participant will receive a copy of our Colorado Railroads video and our forthcoming video Rio Grande Narrow Gauge Freights, a $50 value, as part of the ticketing.
