Chasing the Train

If you like trains and looking at historic trains, this blog post is for you.

If you're not a rail buff, you may not know that a lot of enthusiasts drive next to train tracks to "chase" a moving train, taking pictures at various locations. When we rode the Cumbres and Toltec on Wednesday, we saw several folks chasing our train.

Thursday, we were the folks chasing the train. And we weren't the only ones.

The first place we caught the train was just a little way from the station as it crossed a small creek.

At a place called Windy Point, the train can be seen from the road below. It makes a pretty picture. You can click on the photo to enlarge it.

Here are few other views of the train. Enjoy.


  1. Thanks for the great pics, I also enjoy the chase as well as riding. Sam & Donna...

  2. I tried to do that but failed miserably. Good job capturing the action shots.
