As a precaution against fires a pick-up truck, equipped with a firefighting hose, travels alongside the train as much as possible. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad built in 1880 and little-changed since then is the most spectacular example of steam era mountain railroading in North America. The original narrow gauge extended from Denver to Santa Fe to Silverton. Today it is a 64 mile portion that runs from Chama, New Mexico, to Antonito, Colorado. The present railroad is jointly owned by the states of New Mexico and Colorado. September 2000. 2000090150<br />
