Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad 

Owned by the states of Colorado and New Mexico, the historic steam railroad runs for 64 miles across the Rocky Mountains, crossing state borders 11 times as it curls across rivers, through tunnels, over trestles and along the lip of canyons, at one point steaming over Cumbres Pass at 10,015 – the highest point reached by any steam railroad in the nation.

The Cumbres & Toltec was originally part of the Denver & Rio Grande Western, San Juan Extension that was built in 1880. It was saved from demolition in 1970 when the states of Colorado and New Mexico stepped in to purchase the railroad and keep it running as an historical example of early railroading in the West. The Cumbres and Toltec Railroad was also recognized as the #1 Scenic Train in the United States!
