Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

The DRGW narrow gauge was the last major steam operation in the U.S. The climb over 10,000 foot Cumbres pass was spectacular, with two engines handling 70 car trains. Hopefully these images convey some of the drama of mountain steam railroading.
