Last month I drove some of my family to the train depot in Chama New Mexico so they could ride the old narrow gauge steam train through the southern Rockies to Antonito, Colorado.
I hung around the rail yard in the early morning light capturing a few photos.
Here are the results of those efforts.
Getting ready to back the engine up
Coal smoke fills the yard
The wheel's driving links
Waiting patiently for the engineer to finish his morning coffee
Building up a head of steam
Leaving the rail yard with passengers hoping to see eagles and elk in the high country.
That's quite the snowplow on the front.
Ride safe y'all
