D & R G Railway in April Chama New Mexico RPPC Postcard Friendship Friday

.This postcard shows the  Denver and Rio Grand Train in Chama New Mexico.

This is a wonderful Real Photo Postcard showing one of the trains that went through the Rockies....also shortened to D. & R.G."Thru the rockies not around them" was their slogan.
Highest mainline train in the US including the Rockies. Chama is near the border of Colorado in New Mexico. Went through a snow storm as the postcard indicates
Go to Beths Blog to see more entries in PFF.  She is sharing a lovely Thanksgiving postcard.
