Idea for C&T train

The Antonito Turn special-Once a Week/Month

How about a train that runs from Chama to Antonito and back on the same day? Start in Chama at 9:15 AM. Meets the other trains Then head to Antonito. While in Antonito have a little bit of a layover/newcrew and dinner while the train turns around and then go back to Chama in the sunset!

Or you can plug in a second value. Build 2-3 cars with dinning capibilites. Maybe two cars with tables/chairs and one cook car. Have lunch and dinner on the Train and start later. Either limit ridership to what those cars could handle, or have alternate eating times. These cars would also work for Moonlight trains.

2 Meals Plus full Ride=$135 a ticket Coach. $180 Parlor

Second Option figures:
Let's say you have 2 table cars, one cook car, 3 Passenger cars, one observacation, and one Parlor car.

Passenger Car=40 Passengersx3=$16200
Parlor Car=20 Passengers=$3600
=$19800

MINUS

2 Engineers Approx=$140 $10 per hour
2 Firemen Approx=$126 $9 per hour
Conductor=$140 $10 per hour
Cook=$140 $10 per hour
Servers (2)=$224 $8 per hour
Staff (1)=$112 $8 per hour
Coal=$1620 $90 per ton
Wear and Tear=$4000
Oil-Sand-ETC=$200
Ticket Office/Supplies=$150
Food=$1500
=$8152
Profit=$10448 assuming full house
