Specification

It's the 1960s again and Ralph and Jim Marcus is filming in 16mm color some of the last trains over the Rio Grande Narrow Gauge. Lots of steam, smoke and spectacular scenery await you in this nostalgic and historic program. Follow double-headed #498 and #487 from Alamosa to Chama. Next day #498 picks up 3 loads of lumber and loads sheep into double decker stock cars. You follow the train up Cumbres Pass. You're trackside as the last Rocky Mountain Railroad Club's Fall "Kolor Karavan" steams from Alamosa over Cumbres Pass to Durango and Silverton.

K-37 #493 leaves Alamosa down the 3-rail for Chama with many unique shots along the line. Then follow a lumber train Cumbres Turn. The now abandoned Durango-Chama line is documented on a two-day round trip with K-37 #497 hauling drop bottom gons, box cars and flats of lumber and pipe. On the Farmington branch #497 makes a round trip from Durango. #493 takes a lumber train up to Cumbres in a light snow cover. Today the railroad is gone forever from any of the locations documented in this program.

This program features an informative narrative and a musical background has been added to the original 16 millimeter silent films. Filmed in 1966 and 1967 by Jim Marcus. 90 minutes. Copyright 2006 WB Video Productions.
