Remarks & Notes 
Narrow gauge equipment was designed for tight fits and the north entrance to the Chama Yard is definitely in that category. In this illustration, the daily train from Antonito, Colorado emerges from the narrow corridor created by dense woods and a line-up of ancient wooden DRGW reefers. On point today is K-36 #488, sporting a plow pilot. The K-36s are the workhorses of the remaining Colorado Narrow Gauge operations, with 8 of them still in operation between the CTS and DSNG.

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad are all that remains of the legendary Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge system. Here you'll find some of my favorites from these two beautiful railways.
