Remarks & Notes 
In an attempt to open its line from winter snows, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic operated a triple-header rotary snow plow train on May 3, 1997. Three mikados are shoving Rotary OY as they near the deepest snow encountered on Windy Point, Colo., just short of the summit at Cumbres Pass which wouldn't be achieved until the next day. The footprints in the snow ahead of the rotary are from pursuing photographers.
