 It's Steamy Sunday here on the Blog and the first one of 2024!  I like to start off the year with my very favorite railroad, the Cumbres & Toltec in Colorado and New Mexico.  I want to get back there and ride again soon, it's been over 5 years since my last trip and this photo is even older.  I took this back when I was using a Sony point and shoot.  It was a good camera though with a nice built in zoom.  Anyway, in this image they are taking on water at Cumbres Pass before the locomotive heads back to Chama, NM.  They had just been double heading up to the pass and this is the helper locomotive.  I decided to go back to my roots of B&W for this image and I think it worked pretty well with that great sky.


  1. Very nice B&W image. What aspects of this railroad make it your favourite?

    1. Very laid back. A good feel for what riding a steam train would be like. Friendly people, great scenery and lunch.
