Filming will begin on a pilot episode of a proposed miniseries by NBC Entertainment crews this month on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad.  It is a post-Civil War story titled “Reconstruction”   about a soldier who crosses the country and settles into a Missouri border town.

The crew has planned a day of shooting in Chama and another near Antonito, Colo., on C&TS track. At least two days of preparation and two days of post-shoot dismantling will be needed.

If the studio succeeds in pitching the story to the NBC network, crews will resume shooting in northern New Mexico for a dozen episodes.

“We are thrilled to be part of NBC’s pilot,” said Nick Quintana, a spokesman for C&TS’s management company. “This is a very exciting launch to the all-new Cumbres & Toltec (Scenic Railroad)  2011 season.”
