Colorado scenic railroad keeping schedule despite fire

The Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad has returned to its normal operating schedule, despite last month's fire at an historic trestle in northern New Mexico. It's expected to take months to replace the decades-old Lobato Trestle - four miles from Chama, New Mexico - that was burned on June 23.

Passengers still are departing Chama like before at 10 a.m. for the first leg of the trip north to Colorado. But they are taking a motor-coach bus to Cumbres and then boarding a train that continues on to Osier, Colorado. On the return trip, passengers transfer from train to motor coach at Cumbres and then complete the trip.

New Mexico and Colorado jointly own the tourist railroad.
