NIce Video Roger, Thanks for sharing. 

For those of us who are not familiar with Colorado/New Mexico, can you tell me why they call this "the Narrows"?

It is essentialy that. The terrain closes down from wide open at the 17 road crossing to a point where the road
and the railroad share the side of a hill where a retaining wall separates the road and railroad, the road above
the railroad. Once past there the terrain opens up.

Technically it is the "Chama River Narrows".  Coming off Cumbres Pass, the railroad follows Wolf Creek all the way down and crosses the same creek on the tall Lobato Trestle.  A short ways down stream from the trestle, Wolf Creek flows into the Chama River.  The railroad follow the Chama River on into Chama itself.  Just south (timetable "west") of Lobato Siding , the Chama River enters a short narrow canyon, with the railroad and highway on the east side.  In ancient times it is thought the glacier that scowered out the Wolf Creek Valley north of Lobato, ended at this point and left this short canyon untouched.  After a mile or so, the canyon (or "Narrows") opens up into a broader valley.
