Movie History

1 2nd Train Robbery

Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, a modern 19th century movie star

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad has appeared in many movies. Its wide open spaces and authentic narrow gauge steam engines lend itself to many a Western Movie.  And, while we would like to say that the Railroad had famous co-stars like Kevin Costner, Harrison Ford and Gregory Peck, some of the human actors might argue otherwise.
