    on 2/27/20 i flew to albuquerque new mexico, eventually met up with michael and pete, went north to champ new mexico for a 2 day charter on the cumbres and toltec, featuring restored steam rotary plow OY pushed by 2 of their locomotives. 150 photographers, 4 busses, 2 highway patrol departments, 2 state dot departments, snowmobilers, some freeloaders, and some great photos of a piece of equipment i never thought i'd see operating in my lifetime, oh and did i mention expensive??

    here we are, first location of the day, throwing some snow


    moved out on the line some more, a little closer to the action, first charter ever for using the 70-300 this much


    throwing that snow, we do not have a snowblower so i had forgotten how they churn up snow at the blades

    coming at us


    as we got further up the line into higher elevations the snow got noticeably deeper


    aaah, i can't remember the name of this trestle, and i should pause in the processing and read the book i came home with, the mile by mile trackside guide of this line. the grey tank car right behind the rotary is a water tanker just for the rotary, when we reached cox crossing the chama fire dept plus the cumbres railroads own fire patrol tanker came up and watered the engines

    so seem to be unable to tame this autocorrect, so we will just keep trying to spot the unwelcome corrections
    sunday, day 2 of the rotary charter, from stateline up to the cumbres pass station, starting off with rory, a poor unfortunate snowman, brutalized in the chama yard with full railroad consent


    he just couldn't take it


    it was a short life, but a good one


    and for those who knew, after 2 1/2 weeks of covid i am finally cleared to return to life, and finally have energy to do so

    Sing it with me now, “Do you want to kill a snowman? ...”

    Seriously, next time we need to hollow it out and put a watermelon in it.
