## About This Content
One of America’s most famous and challenging railroading experiences – hauling
Santa Fe tonnage and leading Amtrak’s Southwest Chief over the rugged Sangre
de Cristo Mountains of Colorado and New Mexico – now awaits you with the new
Train Simulator Raton Pass route!
Developed by Milepost Simulations (creators of noted Train Simulator routes
including Canadian Mountain Passes and Clear Creek Narrow Gauge), the new
Raton Pass route re-creates the 1990s when Raton Pass was host to Santa Fe
warbonnet diesels totting intermodals, coal, grain, and manifests as well as
Amtrak’s stylish Superliner-equipped Southwest Chief.
The Raton Pass route extends from the Colorado high plains at Hoehne’s, then
to Trinidad where the rugged climb over Raton Pass begins. With steep grades,
tight curves, and a mix of single and double track, the path through the
Sangre de Cristo Mountains to Raton, New Mexico promises both challenging and
memorable railroading. South of Raton, the upcoming routes continues to
Hebron, New Mexico, and offers a total of approximately 45 route miles as well
as yard and interchange facilities. Constructed through the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains and the along the path of Raton Creek in 1878-79, the railroad
featured imposing grades that reached 3.7 percent on the final leg of the
climb west from Gallinas to Wootton and the 2,041-foot-long Raton Pass Tunnel
at an elevation of 7,588 feet (highest point on the Santa Fe).
In addition to the legendary route over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the
Train Simulator Raton Pass route features a superb selection of locomotives
and rolling stock. Santa Fe motive power includes two General Electric
4,000-horsepower “Dash 8” locomotives clad in Santa Fe’s famed silver-and-red
“Warbonnet” livery: the four-axle (B-B) GE B40-8W, six-axle C40-8W. To power
the Amtrak Southwest Chief, Amtrak’s unique GE B32-8WH (Dash 8-32BWH), is
provided. A complete Amtrak Superliner consist is also featured, highlighted
by an Amtrak Material Handling Car (MHC). For tonnage duty, the new Raton Pass
route also provides a superb selection of freight rolling stock, including
distinctive articulated “spine car” piggyback flats and Thrall-design coal
Note: The Raton Pass route is available worldwide. Due to licensing
restrictions, Santa Fe markings will appear only on content distributed to U.
