Last D&RGW n.g. "Freight", Chama and west - Dec. 6, 1968

December 06, 2018 08:15AM avatar
Good Morning -

Picking up where we left off last evening, it was a very cold but busy morning in Chama fifty years ago today as #483 has had her cistern filled, the engines move forward to the coaling tower, and then #473 moves away as #483's tender is topped off with fuel:

Here #483 has returned from being turned on the wye at the south end of town.  I presume the large Rio Grande truck at the right has just brought in the west-end crew who will take #473 and her train on to Durango:

The two locomotives pose briefly back-to-back:

. . . and then #473 heads west with her train:

The small puff of exhaust steam at the far left in the above photo is the only shot Ernie has of #483's return from Chama to Alamosa with two of yesterday's three cabeese — the very last D&RGW operation over Cumbres Pass.     sad smiley

#473, with #481 in tow and a recently acquired Christmas tree adorning the roof of caboose #0540, passes the wye on her left and the Skyline lumber mill on her right and heads west toward Durango:
