Remarks & Notes 
The first rays of morning sunlight peek over the San Juan Foothills and begin to reach the valley floor in Hermosa as DRGW #478 approaches from the south with a Willow Creek Productions Photo Charter. Seconds after this photo was taken, the throttle was closed and the train began slowing for a water stop before proceeding up the 2.5% grade from Hermosa to Rockwood.

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.
