Antonito Christmas Trains

November 04, 2019 08:26AM avatar
Well not surprisingly I am now mostly thinking about off-season plans.

On the subject of the Christmas trains, Chama' s will almost certainly have 488 as the motive power since she is the only locomotive still with her tender.

Meanwhile, Antonito' s I am a little concerned about. When I first heard of the charter on October 26th I was expecting it to be powered by 489. But 463 took charge instead after bringing a 5 car train to Antonito the previous day. So 489's flues may have expired so she might finally be due for her 1472. So that leaves no available motive power for the extras besides 168 which can probably haul about 3 or 4 cars, and that would be nowhere near enough to cope with the number of riders. 484 and 463 have had their tenders removed, so they aren't possible as an alternative.

So, what are the plans for the Christmas trains? Does 489 still have enough flue time to operate them? Maybe Mr. Bush can help with this.
