Cumbres and Toltec

I was saddened to see that a trestle over a deep ravine on the Cumbres and Toltec Rail Road burned yesterday.  I have taken that train often over the years, but my favorite ride was with Bobbi and Justin back in about 1983.  Justin had the time of his life on this trip.(You might notice he had his little blanket with him too.)

This fire will cost the northern New Mexico Economy a bundle in lost revenues from the tourists who ride this train.  Certainly, it will harm Chama the most.  The Governor and his troops need to jump on this immediately with a crash repair of the bridge.  Colorado should shoulder some of the costs too!
