WELCOME to the Official Friends Forum

This forum has been created to provide a place to discuss all aspects of the Cumbres & Toltec,  the Friends of the

Cumbres & Toltec, and the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad. Our intention is to promote the Friend's

organization and to illustrate the good works that they do. Considering the intended purpose of the forum,

emphasis will be given to the Friend's Projects and Work Sessions. However, this is not meant to discourage

comments and discussions involving other areas of interest involving the C&TS and the D&RGW.


Membership in this forum and posting privileges are open to the public, but at the discretion of the moderators.

Friend's Members will have access to hidden features that the general public cannot view.


To join the Friend's, please visit the main website.


Everyone is encouraged to post photos, videos, stories, first-hand accounts, and historical information regarding

the railroad, the locomotives, the 140+ car fleet, and line-side structures. In particular, team leaders are asked

to share information and updates regarding their projects.  Please remember that any photos uploaded

become part of this message board while the copyrights remain with the owners.


During Friend's Work Sessions, breaks and lunches are a great time to get together and visit with other members.

It is our hope that this forum will allow that sense of community and family to continue year-round.
