Victorian Iron Horses on the C&TS - Volume 2
RGS 20 and the Fall Photo Trips


A couple of days after the conclusion of the Victorian Iron Horse Roundup, Rio Grande Southern 4-6-0 #20 operated it's first excursion on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad - a doubleheader with K-27 2-8-2 #463 masquerading as Rio Grande Southern #455. This program begins with that August 31st doubleheader, then chronicles a month of special excursions with #20 and the other two resident Victorian locomotives on the C&TS: D&RG 4-6-0 #168 and D&RG 2-8-0 #425 (more commonly known as Denver & Rio Grande Western #315).

While Eureka and Glenbrook were the stars of the August Roundup (covered on Victorian Iron Horses on the C&TS - Vol. 1), RGS #20 was the main attraction in September and October. The 1899-built 4-6-0 was visiting from the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden - it's first trip away from the museum since it was returned to steam in 2020. This program covers all of #20's runs except a September 5th trip from Antonito to Big Horn.

The video includes:

  • Aug. 31st - Trains Magazine RGS charter w/ #20 and #455 - Antonito to Osier
  • Sept. 25th - Friends of the C&TS D&RG #168 charter - Antonito to Osier
  • Sept. 27th - Lerro Productions charter Day 1: D&RG #168 - Antonito to Big Horn
  • Sept. 28th - Day 2: D&RG #425 - Antonito to Cascade Trestle
  • Sept. 29th - Day 3: RGS #20 - Antonito to Osier
  • Oct. 1st - RGS #20 - Antonito to Chama
  • Oct. 2nd - RGS #20 - Chama to Antonito (doubleheaded w/ #455 to Cumbres Pass)

The aspens were at peak fall color in early October and you won't want to miss RGS #20 climbing the 4% grade from Chama to Cumbres Pass. You'll also see breathtaking sunrise shots with both #168 and #425 on the east side of the railroad, plus some lesser known photo spots that were featured during the 3-day Lerro Productions charter that ran out of Antonito, CO.

Filmed entirely in HD, this video features 3 narrow gauge 19th century steam locomotives operating at home in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. In addition to the sweeping vistas of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, there's plenty of great steam action in this comprehensive look at RGS 20 and the fall photo trips. This program has minimal narration (with the option to turn it on or off) and no distracting music. It's available on standard definition widescreen DVD, High Definition Blu-ray disc, and for rental or purchase through Vimeo's On Demand streaming service.

Victorian Iron Horses on the C&TS - Volume 1
Eureka, Glenbrook, and the VIHR


As part of it's 50th anniversary celebration, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad hosted an unprecedented gathering of 5 narrow gauge steam locomotives built in the 19th century - the Victorian Iron Horse Roundup. The five locomotives were Denver & Rio Grande 4-6-0 #168, Denver & Rio Grande 2-8-0 #425, Eureka & Palisade 4-4-0 #4 "Eureka," Carson and Tahoe Lumber and Fluming Co. 2-6-0 #1 "Glenbrook," and Rio Grande Southern 4-6-0 #20. This 2-disc video features comprehensive coverage of the 9-day event, with a combination of trackside video and aerial footage along the 64 miles between Antonito, CO and Chama, NM.

The Roundup featured numerous special excursions, with doubleheaders being the norm on most days. Eureka and Glenbrook (the two 1875 woodburners) were always operated together, while #168 and #425 also ran as a pair most of the time. RGS #20 was fired up and on display, but didn't operate any excursions until August 31st after the conclusion of the Roundup. Those trips are covered in the companion volume: Victorian Iron Horses on the C&TS - Vol. 2. In addition to complete coverage of the Roundup, this program includes a couple of special trips the week before the Victorian event.

The video includes:

  • Aug. 15th - D&RG #168 - Antonito to Osier w/ the historic cars
  • Aug. 17th - D&RG #425 - Chama to Antonito positioning move for the VIHR
  • Aug. 20th - Pre-VIHR preparations
  • Aug. 21st - Day 1: D&RG #168 and #425 - Antonito to Big Horn
  • Aug. 22nd - Day 2: Eureka and Glenbrook - Antonito to Big Horn
  • Aug. 23rd - Day 3: Antonito Open House / Display Day
  • Aug. 24th - Day 4: D&RG #168 and #425 - Antonito to Osier

  • Aug. 29th - Day 9: D&RG #168 and #425 - Chama to Antonito (coverage to Cumbres)

Filmed entirely in HD, this 2-disc video chronicles what was undeniably the biggest steam event of 2021, with unparalleled in-depth coverage. This program gives you a front row seat to the once-in-a-lifetime Victorian Iron Horse Roundup. It features the breathtaking high country views the Cumbres & Toltec is famous for, plus 4 immaculately restored pre-1900 locomotives stretching their legs on the steep grades of Cumbres Pass.

This program has minimal narration (with the option to turn it on or off) and no distracting music. It's available on standard definition widescreen DVD, High Definition Blu-ray disc, and (coming soon) for rental or purchase through Vimeo's On Demand streaming service.
