Tiptoeing through the Snow
A heavy snowfall does not deter D&S 473 and its crew as the head upgrade into Rockwood with the Cascade Turn. This particular area is called "The Little High Line" as the track threads a narrow ledge well above Shalona Lake, lost in the snow in the left distance. The speed limit through here is just 10 mph. In a few minutes the train will encounter the High Line itself, hundreds of feet above the frozen Animas River.
