Remarks & Notes 
A Pot of Gold in Chama! After a 15-car doubleheader Saturday morning, a 10-car train 215 came into Chama with little fanfare, a lot of it in rain. After the train let everyone off, they pulled forward to allow the cars to be re-stocked. As they were finishing the last few cars, rain started spitting out of the sky, and a couple rainbows formed! We walked up to where they were stopped from our spot to catch this, and it's a good thing we did, because shortly before they started pulling the sun disappeared. Here, C&TS 487 is stopped in the yard near the scale track (the scale can be seen in the bottom left corner).
