Sad news from Chama, New Mexico



"Steam-powered trains on the New Mexico side of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic railroad have been cancelled after a fire destroyed ties and track structure on a high bridge in the San Juan Mountains." link to more

This is where we are going this summer to ride the old trains...

Update: The trains will still be running this summer, and the bridge will be rebuilt, yippee!

PLEASE NOTE!
The railroad is running

This from the Narrow Gauge Discussion Forum:


Let's help get the word out that the railroad IS running. Trains are running normally out of Antonito, and bus connections are running out of Chama. Let's help minimize the economic damage to the railroad by countering the perception media coverage is creating that the railroad is shut down. THE RAILROAD IS NOT SHUT DOWN.
