Remarks & Notes 
Sunrise at Ferguson's Trestle. DRGW 487's Fireman is brightly illuminated by his red-hot fire as Flanger Extra 487 heads west over Ferguson's Trestle at sunrise, on a mission to clear the line to Cumbres Pass.

This and many other scenes of a bygone era were re-enacted on a photo charter in March of 2016, organized by the Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, and sponsored by 40 photographers from around the world.

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.

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)
