West from Antonito....road engine.

December 1961. Not much snow on the ground at Antonito, but a flanger spreader train had preceeded this train over Cumbres, and it was obvious from the snow covered engines at Chama later that night that there was plenty of snow on Cumbres. A few weeks later OM would make the last DRGW rotary run over Cumbres.

The this and the next two "West from Antonito" pictures started with very dark underexposed images and were Photoshopped into what you see in a joint effort by myself, Russ Sperry, and Tom Gildersleeve as part of a fund-raising screen saver CD for C&TS 483.
