At Chama, I found the Lerro Productions


team in the enginehouse vandalizing one of the locomotives — well, that’s what it looked like. Mitch Goldman was hard at work scraping the numeral 9 off the cab of 2-8-2 No. 489 in preparation for transforming the locomotive into the long-ago scrapped No. 485. New vinyl numbers under the cab, a new number board and a change of numbers in the train symbol boards and the transfor- mation was complete. The next day the charter left Chama in


early afternoon, heading for Cumbres Pass. As the afternoon light got better, runbys were held at Windy Point and Tanglefoot Curve, and then a night session was held at the Cumbres section house. The final shot featured the 485 on a small bridge under a blanket of stars (see FINAL FRAME). Thursday, September 22, found No. 487


leading a charter to Osier, where Pete Lerro had arranged another surprise. A rancher


was hired to bring in cows to populate the cattle pens at Osier, and several attempts were made to simulate loading stock cars on the photo train. While the cows were largely uncooperative, several good photos were put on the digital cards. That night Nos. 487 and 485 were fea-


tured side by side in a night session at the Chama yard. In an attempt to give the pho- tos some depth, the crews on each locomo- tive were asked to provide a blow-down to spread some mist in the scene, and they wound up shooting steam at each other — it was something akin to Battleship, but with steam locomotives. Friday was a travel day over to Durango,


Colo., where the Durango & Silverton Nar- row Gauge was running photo trains on each of the weekend days. A Friday night photo session was held in the Durango yard (as was a Saturday night session) with Ler- ro Productions providing the lighting.


The Durango roundhouse was the scene for two Lerro Productions night photo sessions on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge. On Sept. 23, 2011, three 2-8-2s share the spotlight (above). The Denver light rail system has many photo opportunities along its route, including near Mile High Stadium (below). A small slice of sports history is evident here, as the station sign still barely reads “Invesco Field,” the former corporate sponsor of Mile High Stadium.
