Remarks & Notes 
A Grande sunrise at Ferguson's Trestle. Denver & Rio Grande Western's Locomotive 484 rumbles across Ferguson's Trestle near MP 286 at the crack of dawn as the vanguard of a 2-engine, 35-car freight destined for Chama, NM via Cumbres Pass. This historic re-creation was part of a 3-day photo charter, organized by Historic Transport Preservation (HTP) and hosted by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. It featured just about every roadable freight car in the C&TS collection, including the string of recently-restored tanks that you see here.

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
