Remarks & Notes 
DRGW 487 is rounding Windy Point and is now in full assault of the final few hundred yards of 4%. If all these cars had been loads this train would have been quite near the tonnage limits for these two K-36's. That makes this train a quite authentic representation of a Cumbres Turn. This spot is my personal favorite on the line from Chama to Antonito.
