Re: Day Two of the Cumbres & Toltec (Wed., 09/02/70)

September 02, 2015 01:35PM avatar
I don't remember when I arrived in Antonito – probably on Tuesday evening – but I do
remember taking only a couple of photos of #483 on Wednesday morning, Day Two of
the C&TS, before leaving my dog Nikki with some of the other volunteers and hopping
on the speeder that Richard mentioned above, along with a small crew headed toward
a bad section of track between Calico Cut and the location of the Toltec section house.

I've posted these photos before, but the following are more recent and sharper scans:

That pup is similar to my own, but slightly smaller and a bit darker:

This gives a better idea of just where we were, two or three hundred yards west of 'Calico Cut':

Meanwhile, Ernie Robart had taken this photo as C&TS #483 moved under her own power for the first time:
