Need info on this excursion train in the 1960's...video of vintage film

February 10, 2020 02:03PM
Here is about 90 seconds of two different excursions. The short one has a box car, baggage car, 3 coaches, and a covered rider gon at the end.
484 pulled the train from Alamosa-Durango. 478 was then ridden to Silverton, and the 484 went from Durango to Alamosa with the same short train.
At Monero you will see a trackside view of 483. He shot trackside chasing this train, and spliced the two runs together between Durango and Cumbres. We are pretty sure this one is RMRRC trip Memorial Day weekend 1965. Why, because 498 was the helper out of Chama that year with 483. The 484 train is ridden to Antonito, and never had a helper.
Maybe someone seeing this can help ID which train this is(Short one), and a location or two as well. Enjoy the stuff from the 60's.
