There are not enough steam locomotive pictures in this forum, so this is the first of hopefully many from my trips to Colorado and New Mexico that I'll be posting.

I decided I would go ahead and just add to this thread and encourage others to do the same, keeping it railroad themed. I look forward to seeing what others have to add.

This first one is at Cumbres Pass, CO (10,015 ft.), which is traversed by the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic railroad, formerly the Denver & Rio Grande Western. The locomotive is a 2-8-2 K-36 built in 1925. The locomotive is numbered as #485 for a special charter, when in reality it is most likely #484, #487 or #488. The real #485 was dismantled in 1955 after falling into a turntable pit in Salida, CO.

This is Osier, CO, a small stop on the line between Chama, NM and Antonito, CO. This looks like it could be a cold winter day in the 1930's, but is really from May 20th this year. The locomotive is freshly restored K-27, #463 on her maiden charter. This is one of two from that class that is still around, the other is on the Huckleberry Railroad in Flint, MI. This locomotive was once owned by Gene Autry, who later donated it to the City of Antonito, CO.

Double Header 08-24-13 - 463 & 487 Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

Two steam powered locomotives pulling a 11 car train up the grade. WOW!!! IMHO a pretty site.

Went,

That's a nice looking railway.

Roger,

Excellent photos.

Dickers,

You're welcome. What did you do for the D&RGW?

Sure- I'll play.
Here are three B&W images of the Freedom Train, as it stopped in Portland, Oregon.
A lovely old steamer that was slowly rusting away in Portland's Oak Park, the Freedom Train was brought back to life and began it's 1976 Bi-centennial journey across the country.
Shot with Kodachrome slides and scanned a couple years ago. Because of the dark and dismal wintry weather that day, the color shots were too murky- so I converted them.
Still tough lighting- but my shots of the magnificent locomotive look better in B&W.
The train's the deal, anyway- not my ability or lack of... .

Train on Corsica in the Mediterranean, June 1987. Those don't run any longer. Used to be a blast to ride these, sitting in the luggage compartment with your feet dangling out the open doors as it climbed across the mountain grades. Safety? Heck, it was France in the 1980s

and a more compact design, Italian coast 1983

Dalmas,

That very easily could be the 1960's. A nice classic shot.
