Additionally, our knowledgeable crew will share fascinating insights into the history and operation of the Cumbres & Toltec, enriching your photographic experience.

Preserving History By Way of Railroad Photo Charter

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is a living museum, preserving the rich history of American railroading. Our railroad photo charter allows you to step back in time and witness the operation of steam locomotives and historic rail cars in their natural environment. As you photograph the train chugging up steep grades, crossing high trestles, and winding through lush valleys, you will gain a deeper appreciation for the engineering marvels and human stories that shaped this vital mode of transportation. Our photo run-bys are a great opportunity to capture the essence of the Cumbres & Toltec.
