Caboose 0579 and other railroad equipment sits in the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad yard in Chama, New Mexico on May 19, 2013. Aside from the diesel, this scene looks much as it has for the past 100+ years. Mike Armstrong photo.
No. 0579 is a 30′ wood 3′ gauge caboose built by the Denver & Rio Grande railroad in 1886. It had a long career on the Denver & Rio Grande and later the Denver & Rio Grande Western. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad operates on a preserved portion of the old Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge line in Colorado and New Mexico.
Cumbres & Toltec Caboose 0579 shows the caboose in Chama, New Mexico after having been restored to its 1948 appearance.

About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Cumbres & Toltec Caboose 0579 are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Cumbres & Toltec Caboose 0579 print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All TSG prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
We cut our own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what we have in stock but we always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send us a note and we will try to accommodate you. For the color version of Cumbres & Toltec Caboose 0579 we usually use a double mat, often in shades of green, brown and/or gray. The sepia version looks best in shades of brown and/or gray. Sometimes we use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. We recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
