Remarks & Notes 
DRGW 484 and another engine are serviced at the Chama coaling tower in preparation for a trip west to Durango. This coaling tower still exists on the C&TS and while it is not used it is very close to being serviceable and may be used in the future on a demonstration basis.

The DRGW narrow gauge was the last major steam operation in the U.S. The climb over 10,000 foot Cumbres pass was spectacular, with two engines handling 70 car trains. Hopefully these images convey some of the drama of mountain steam railroading.
