here is a ten minute video on how John Bush sees railroading. Hopefully this will take you there.

I didn't watch the video, and I've never heard of John Bush, so I just looked at the plethora of pictures to click on and decided that the one where the stupid dude is 'surfing' on a moving rail car. Such a stupid trick like that isn't something that I would condone by watching the rest of it.

Sorry it didn't take you directly there. That was the wrong vid. This is a nice video on the Cumbres & Toltec RR and is 10 mins long. It takes a few minutes to load but i think it is worth it.

look for

Lessons learned from a lifetime of working on a historic American West railroad.

Mark, you should watch it. Joe Harper, who is a regular 261 rider, sent it to me. John Bush runs the Cumbres and Toltec, and their engines are coal fired. It is quite interesting about his history and what made him get involved.

I was very impressed by this little production, and the life lessons Mr. Bush imparted. I was particularly struck by his decision to get involved with the Cumbres & Toltec after breaking his hip in his twenties, realizing "You do not have to be old to be dead," and that it was high time to pursue his dreams.
