Remarks & Notes 
A fitting finale. As the 2011 Willow Creek Productions Charter drew to a close, the D&RGW Mixed Train was brought to the most well-known spot on the line....the High Line Horseshoe at Rockwood. Here, the train did a series of run-bys, taking advantage of the late afternoon sun. Photographers fanned out for their last shots, some climbing high on the rocks, and others going for low angles. Here's a rare view of DRGW #478 and her train, as viewed from a rock shelf below the railroad grade.

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.
