Several time during the operating season, the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad holds a Fireman and Engineer School for fans who wish to learn how to fire and operate a coal fired, narrow gauge steam locomotive. Here is the school train, consisting of restored boxcars at the 10,015 ft. summit at Cumbres. Water will be taken here after the hard climb up the 4 % grade from Chama NM.
