‘Soot and Cinders’ Educational Curriculum

Understanding the history of the train industry in America is an educational tool towards understanding modes of transportation and alternative energy systems for our future. The curriculum has been developed for us by The Friends of the Cumbres Toltec as a historical perspective of trains in Colorado, New Mexico, and America in general. It is teacher-friendly and can be adapted to many grade levels.
