Originally, the Denver and Rio Grande Western narrow gauge railroad was built in 1880 to service the mines and timber in Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado. The Cumbres and Toltec is one of the biggest tourist attractions in New Mexico. At 10,022 ft., Cumbres Pass is the highest narrow gauge rail line in North America and the Toltec Canyon is another highlight of the route.
On trip to Colorado, we were lucky to reach the Pass when two locomotives were passing by. Lots of train fans out to watch. For more info, visit https://cumbrestoltec.com .
