June 3 & 4, 2017
Mark these dates as the Friends will be sponsoring a photo freight charter pulled by D&RGW Locomotive 315. This charter will operate on Saturday June 3rd and Sunday June 4th. This weekend follows the Friends work session “B.”
The charter will originate in Antonito and operate to Cumbres on Saturday with numerous photo runbys and a lunch stop in Osier. A motorcoach will transport passengers back to Antonito that evening.
On Sunday June 4th a motorcoach will take passengers from the C&TS Depot in Antonito to Cumbres. The charter will then work its way back east to Antonito again with numerous photo runbys along the way and a lunch stop in Osier.
To make this event affordable to more people we will be offering a daily fare so participants may purchase just one day or both if so desired. Friends’ members will receive a discounted fare under what the general public will pay. The railroad has not provided their final cost estimates yet so we cannot publish an actual fare. We expect this in the next week or so.
