The Cumbres & Toltec Railroad was named the New Mexico’s official State Train in 2005.  This railroad, built in the 1880’s, runs the 64 miles between Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado over gorgeous mountainous terrain, thru tunnels and on high narrow trestles as a tourist attraction for both states.  The steam engine locomotives and preserved cars have changed little since their early days as the Denver and Rio Grande narrow gauge line and are known as “America’s longest and highest narrow-gauge steam railroad.”  Making the trip all the way between the two points or getting off midway at the top of the mountain in Osier and returning back by bus to your departure point gives one an opportunity to travel back in time to the early days of the twentieth century.  These trips run daily from late May to mid October with special trips now offered in the winter.
