Cumbres and Toltec #497 at Chama, NM

Rio Grande narrow gauge K-37 locomotive # 497 (2-8-2) crosses Highway 17 just outside Chama, NM with the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic passenger train. The train is headed for the 4% climb over the 10,020 ft Cumbres Pass summit before heading downgrade through the Toltec Gorge for the remainder of the 64 mile route through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and New Mexico. The K-37 (490) class narrow gauge locomotives were built from obsolete standard gauge Baldwin Consolidation (2-8-0) locomotives in the Rio Grande shops.
