I love trains! So when I saw this video from National Geographic, I definitely watched it! Nat Geo went out to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. Traveling for 64-miles along the border between Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado, the railroad chugs its way up and over the 10,015 foot high Cumbres Pass. Built in 1880, the C&TS Railroad has revealed the staggering beauty of the American west for nearly a 140 years.
This railroad runs things like they did over 100 years ago, from using all steam engines, to using manpower to maintain the railroad. This is one great short documentary!
