Rotary on the Rio Grande Narrow Gauge - DVD
In 1975 and 1976 the Cumbres & Toltec fired up Rio Grande Rotary OM. These two snow plow adventures ran out of Chama during the late winter and inspired many to chase and photograph the events. But none covered it as well as noted photographer, Emery Gulash.
In this DVD you will witness the re-creation of the Rio Grande snow trains made famous in the history of the narrow gauge line: bucking snow drifts, backing up and hitting'er hard again to break the packed snow, powerful showers of snow flinging out the snow chute and burying anything in the snow shower's path. Emery captured some of the most beautiful snow scenes ever filmed on Colorado narrow gauge. Locos 492 (a class K-37), 487 & 483 (class K-36s) do the honors in this film. This DVD depicts the roughest, toughest work the Rio Grande had to endure, and you will want to watch every minute of it over and over to appreciate the effort that went in to keeping the lines open during the winter seasons. This all color DVD was transferredfrom original 16mm color film.
