Cab Ride La Veta Pass Pt 2,


Cab Ride Over La Veta Pass Volume 2: La Veta to Fort Garland

Enjoy a head end ride on a frieght train over one of railroading's most mysterious mountain passes. Largely hidden from railfans for over 50 years because trains run at night, you'll get to enjoy a rare daytime freight run over Colorado's rugged scenic La Veta Pass.

This former Denver&Rio Grande Western line feature lots of twists and turns, and grades of up to 3 percent,

Sierra to La Veta- Ride the eastbound freight from the base of the mountain, over the top of La Veta Pass , and down to the twonof La Veta. This is rugged railroading and our freight nearly stall on the hill! Running Time: 2 hrs
La Veta to near Fort Garland- The scenery is just as spectacular in the other direction as out light units return to Alamosa. You'll go a few miles past Sierra, then as a special bonus you'll see the last few miles into Alamosa. Running Time: 2 hrs
