Part #: cen-denverriogrande
Come with Machines of Iron and enjoy these vintage views of the Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge freight trains on the Alamosa to Durango, travel to Silverton by passenger train and see the last regular freight train to operate on the Farmington branch. You will go inside the Alamosa roundhouse, watch shop crews rebuilding steam locomotives and see the Durango steam Facilities and yard as they were during regular service. These film from the 1960s show the narrow gauge steam trains that carried pipe and supplies to the Farmington oil fields, lumber that was cut along the line and tank cars of oil from the Gramps loading facility at Chama. Watch the two sections of an eastbound two engine freight climb the 4% grade of Cumbres Pass. This program will take you back to the time when steam powered freight trains were in regular service on the Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge in Colorado and New Mexico.
