Headed for Market
Seven cars of livestock are on their way to eastern markets in the capable hands of K27 463. Ahead lies the 4% grades of Cumbres Pass, then Osier, Antonito and eventually, Alamosa, CO - the end of the narrow gauge.
In reality this is a photo extra on the Cumbres & Toltec, just a mile or so out of its Chama, NM home base. The volunteers of the "Friends of the Cumbres and Toltec" have put in the hours to ensure that the old stock cars are structurally sound and ready for operation, enabling the creation of bygone scenes such as this.
The pocket train is a lovely sight against the Colorado autumn landscape.
