    Rio Grande era. Hwy 17 is still a dirt road and in its old location. Just take my money already.

    I spent about a year working on this route to get it accurate from old images etc, most of the early roads are different to the present day, then had some issues with items uncontrollably duplicating themselves through the whole route, so gave up as I figured that it would be a route somebody would dedicate themselves into making accurately someday. its a big job, looks great so far, good luck !.

    Modeling Cumbres Pass aint for the faint of heart! It took me around 2.5 years on my version of it. I'm glad Bendorsey was able to make some of the buildings and trestles for me and the community when I was working on my version of the route. One of his final projects before his passing.

    It's so beautiful, and I'm so glad this hasn't become dust in the last several months.

    D&RGW K-37s 493 and 495, cut in ahead of the caboose, blast eastward on their second Cumbres Turn of the day, after just passing the second crossing east of Chama. They'll separately return back to Chama just before the sun sets, making one final trip up the pass tomorrow morning, before the road locomotive brings the full 66 car freight to Alamosa.




    These are not the K-36s that Steve is working on.

    Appreciate it Eric! Hope all has been well.

    A slightly delayed Train 115, the westbound San Juan, heads towards Durango after setting out the RPO which developed a hotbox coming down the hill. Once the express was moved to the head coach, the train left town. K-37 #497 builds up the evening's first Cumbres Turn at the west end of the yard, and will pull a cut out after the passenger train clears. The Chama depot is just visible above the 473's cab.
