Happy Valentine's Day if you celebrate!  Since it's a special day I am sharing the railroad I love to visit most, the Cumbres & Toltec in southeastern Colorado and into New Mexico.  This is an old image from the very first visit there.  This was taken the day after riding the train when I was chasing it for photos.  I got very lucky that they decided to do a double header this day for half of the trip.  When they reach the top of this hill it is climbing they are at Windy Point and the trip has been pretty much all uphill.  The rest of the trip will be downhill and the extra locomotive uncoupled and headed back to Chama, New Mexico while the main train went on to Antonito, Colorado.  I thought it worked very well with a B&W treatment as well.  I like to get back to my B&W roots now and then.
