Remarks & Notes 
C&TS ex-DRGW narrow gauge rotary OY plows eastbound just west of Cresco siding. This was the first operation of the OY since 1997, and was part of a two day event hosting about 150 photographers and spectators. If was the first event of the C&TS 50th anniversary season, and celebrating 140 years of steam over Cumbres Pass. Paul's comment below caused me to think about when I first stood in that spot, probably around 1964 chasing a DRGW hill turn from Chama. Yeah, I'm an old fart.
