Remarks & Notes 
Steam and Sagebrush: Sunrise at Hangman's Trestle. Rio Grande Locomotive 488 races westbound across Hangman's Trestle at track speed, hauling loads of steel pipe, destined for the gas fields in Northern New Mexico. Loads of this type tended to make for a fairly long train, as idler flats were typically required to accommodate lengths of pipe that were often longer than the gondolas used to carry them. A Lerro Productions Charter.

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.
