Photo – Re-post from one year ago – – <br>TOPPING CUMBRES PASS!<br>Photo and narrative by Kevin Madore <br><br>After a hard struggle up the slippery rails on Tanglefoot Curve, D&RGW Baldwin-built, 2-8-2 K-36 narrow gauge steam locomotive #484 eases her generous passenger consist into the yard at Cumbres Pass, 10,015 feet above sea-level. Old #484 is looking forward to a drink from the Cumbres standpipe, but her passengers are just looking forward to being at a lower elevation. The Cumbres & Toltec trains are generally unheated, and conditions in the open cars are a tad brisk this day. Unfortunately, many of the passengers weren’t exactly prepared for these conditions.
