    Chama Charter Trip
    The Pueblo Model Railroad Club charters a C&TS parlor car every year from Chama to Antonito. This year due to cancellations we have two tickets available at $127.30 each for the September 13th trip. This includes a very good lunch at Osier and a bus ride back to Chama. The train leaves Chama at 10:00am and returns to Chama about 5:00pm. If you want to ride with us, contact John Denny. We always have a good time!
