CUMBRES PASS, Colo. — In the fall of 2017, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic re-lettered and numbered Denver & Rio Grande Western K-27 No. 463 as Rio Grande Southern No. 455 for a special photo charter sponsored by the Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic. Since then the locomotive has continued to masquerade as the long-lost RGS locomotive while hauling the C&TS’ regular excursions between Chama, N.M., and Antonito, Colo.

Excursions are running daily through Oct. 22.
