Saturday for train crews
Winter weather greeted the Cinder Bear Christmas Express of the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad as it made its holiday run from Antonito on Saturday. Around 150 passengers chugged through low clouds and intermittent snow along the narrow gauge route stopping midway through the trip to visit Santa Claus and the railroad’s mascot, Cinder Bear. Young passengers got to say “hello” to Santa and received a goody sack. The train made three runs Saturday from the Antonito station.
