A Trip on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Raiload

In late July I was fortunate enough to arrange a business trip where I could spend the weekend in New Mexico. Saturday, 21 July 2001 I rode the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. I got up relatively early and shot some photos as they prepared the locomotives. Then I rode the train. Afterwards, I spend more time walking the yards, etc, shooting like a madman.

in addition to CATS, I also drove down to Santa Fe the next day.

Here are 6 pages of "contact sheet" photos. They're not in any particular order, nor is there any caption information. But each thumbnail is linked to a larger copy of the image.

Technical details: Camera: Minolta XTsi. Lenses: Sigma 28-70 2.8 and Sigma 100-300 3.5/4.5 (check this...). Film was Fuji 400, Fuji 200 and Kodak Ultra Gold 100. Most "scenic" photos shot with a polarizer, and landscapes with a Cokin graduated neutral density filter. I did not record exposure information, but I normally shoot in 'landscape mode', which generally tries to get as small an aperture as possible with an exposure of 1/30 or less.
