The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad train pulled by a steam locomotive crosses the Cascade Trestle (over Cascade Creek) on the 64 mile run between Antonito, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico. The railroad is the highest and longest narrow gauge steam railroad in the United States with a track length of 64 miles. The train traverses the border between Colorado and New Mexico, crossing back and forth between the two states 11 times. The narrow gauge track is 3 feet wide. It runs over 10,015 ft (3,053 m) Cumbres Pass. This photo was taken at 9656 feet.
