Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad fall scenery never disappoints!

Based out of Chama, New Mexico, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is home to some of the most photogenic countryside in United States.

Listen to the beautiful sound of Denver and Rio Grande Western’s Baldwin #463 locomotive as she churns through the beautiful fall countryside of New Mexico.

#463 is seen here hauling a special photo op recreation of a 1940’s livestock train with heritage cars in tow.

Note: At 3:00 in the clip, #463 starts from a full stop on a uphill grade after waiting for her cousins #487 and #489 to complete their pass by.
