Cumbres Pass is the highest point on the C&TSRR at 10,015 feet elevation. It was a major switching location for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad as they dealt with the steep grade between here and Chama, New Mexico. We’ll be stopping here for a few minutes to take on water. During the stop, your Docent will be on the open car explaining more about the history of the operations and buildings here at Cumbres.
