New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona - 4, C&TS Final

Hi, This will be a short post as some of the photo locations chosen for Sunday afternoon just weren't worth the effort to climb on and off the train.

After the Cascade Trestle photo runbys we stopped at Osier to pick up box lunches and take water (above and below).

We met the westbound regular passenger train powered by 2-8-2 "Mudhen" #463.

A stop was made at Sublette (above and below).

This was the final photo run for friend Dale and Me. He did not even detrain here. The weather was deteriorating and the track was mostly obscured by brush.

We were going to have a photo opportunity at Lava where the regular eastbound passenger train would pass the photo freight. At this point we asked if we could complete our return to Antonito on the regular train and our crew arranged it for us. This saved us an hour which was very beneficial as we had a long drive to Farmington, NM that evening. Thanks for looking.
