Remarks & Notes 
Steam, smoke and sagebrush. Feeling right at home amidst the desert dust and sagebrush, two pretty Nevada gals haul a vintage freight upgrade on a beautiful summer morning in the year 2021, some 146 years after they were first constructed. Of course, we're looking at two of the oldest operable narrow gauge locomotives in existence, at least in the United States, in the form of Eureka & Palisade #4 "Eureka" and Carson & Tahoe Lumber & Fluming Co. #1 "Glenbrook", working their magic on the trackage of Colorado's Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. This particular image was made while westbound, near MP 296.7, near the top of a series of reverse curves called "The Whiplash" on the Colorado/New Mexico border. That's long-time Eureka Engineer, George Sapp at the throttle, with Cumbres & Toltec Pilot Carlos Llamas standing in the gangway behind him.
