DATE CONFIRMATION PENDING

Pricing: $2,495 / $500 deposit

America’s steam-operated railroads are spirited remnants of the taming of the west. Two of the most scenic lines stretch across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. The Cumbres and Toltec Railroad travels high into mountain passes while the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge winds through spectacular narrow canyons to a historic mining town.

Join Colorado photographer, Jim Steinberg on a journey back in time to capture stunning fall color along these two historic railways. We will kick off the workshop in Durango before heading to our first overnight stop in Alamosa for a welcome dinner and presentation. In the morning we’ll pack our gear and head to Antonito where we’ll board the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad, the highest and longest narrow gauge steam railroad in the US that traverses the borders of Colorado and New Mexico eleven times. At the end of our ride we’ll arrive in the quaint town of Chama where we’ll overnight before our rail ride back in the morning to Antonito.

As we wind our way over the Cumbres Pass at 10,015′ and through Toltec gorge we’ll have spectacular photo views of stunning mountain peaks blanketed in fall color. Under the guidance of your instructor, Jim Steinberg, you will have ample opportunity to photograph landscape and environmental portraits in both comfortable coach cars and open-air gondolas.

After two days on this scenic rail line, we’ll head back to Durango for an adventure aboard the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train. Our ride will take us along the winding Animas River making stops along the way to photograph the locomotive running down the rails with the stunning backdrop of fall color in the San Juan Mountains. We’ll have opportunities to capture historic scenes from old mining days when the rails ran precious ore from Silverton to Durango.

Join us for a spectacular trip through time.

***NOTE*** The photographer’s train special dates are confirmed in late spring. Typically this falls on the last weekend in September but there is an slight chance that the workshop could move to the week prior on September 20-24, 2017. Please do not make travel arrangement until you have received confirmation from our office of the confirmed dates.
