    • Yeah, cows on the tracks. I remember one C&TS special train that Pat, Gerald, and I were on, late afternoon departure from Chama, steak dinner at Osier (the usual halfway point), and a return by the light of the full moon. Part of the entertainment was a singing cowboy on the train. He was good; we bought his CD.

      There were cows in the pasture where the railroad diverges from the highway, and they liked him, too. As he was singing “The Lonesome Cowboy,” they came crowding around the train. He had to stop singing before they would get out of the way so the train could continue on to dinner.
