The Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad have a large collection of historic narrow gauge railroad photographs from several different collectors. Most of these photos were taken in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado.  Digital copies of the photos are stored in Volumes or Galleries in

The very first volume in each collection gives detailed information on the collection and is numbered 000. This volume can be purchased for free.  Image 000.000 is a PDF file containing all of the other images displayed in the Collection Info Gallery.

The first and largest of the collections is from the late Richard L. Dorman (1922-2010), who was a dedicated railfan, model railroader and author.  His 25,000 photographs are from the 1880's to the present and are entirely uploaded to PhotoShelter.

The second collection is from the late Andrus (Andy) M. Payne (1925-2012) who was an engineer who worked out of Durango on the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad.  His 1,956 photographs were taken from 1954 through 1978 and are in the process of being uploaded to PhotoShelter.

The third collection is from the late George Berkstresser (1928-2014) who was a science teacher at Sargent High School in Monte Vista.  His 1,028 photographs were mostly from around Alamosa and were taken between the mid-1950s to the late 1970s and are going to be uploaded to PhotoShelter in the future.
