Has the C&TS revised its schedule for the line west of Osier to reflect the current terminus at Cumbres? Their website still shows the departure/arrival times at Chama, which it seems to me would not apply to the current shorter run.

A quick email to the C&TS would probably get your answer! Email link is right on the home page...

So it looks like a trestle fire in June has effectively severed the line for the immediate future...
CHAMA, NM, -- The Lobato Trestle, second highest bridge on the 64-mile Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad, was damaged by a fire of undetermined origin Wednesday night, rendering it at least temporarily impassable by trains.
C&TSRR personnel and fire crews were at the scene into Thursday morning. It was initially unclear whether the main structure had suffered damage or whether the fire was confined to the wooden ties and framing of the roadbed over the steel-framed structure.

I'm thinking you might be right. Too bad that won't work for some of the other information I'm looking for.

EDIT: Due to an unexpected change in circumstances, I won't be heading out to New Mexico next month after all, so it doesn't matter what the schedule is.
