Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railway
The award-winning Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad (C&TS)
that runs 64 miles from Chama, NM to Antonito, CO is the main subject in THE RAILROADER, a new documentary short film. The latest project by Brooklyn-based film production company From The Woods , explores the modern West, cultivated by a people unafraid of their differences. Through the lens of lifetime railroader John Bush, the film navigates the C&TS, built in 1880, and its commitment to survive in the twisting and remote mountains of New Mexico and Colorado while demystifying the lore of rugged individualism; and exposing a communal grit and spirit of togetherness that is America’s true heritage.
