This video was made by Kobalt Tools company (Lowes), and their tools are clearly visible being used by the restoration crew, but this not a "commercial" by any means, IMO.

Its just a great video about a difficult restoration.  :)

Great publicity for the Cumbres & Toltec Senic Railroad!   Hopefully they also got at least a nice set of Kobalt tools as well.  8)

The passenger cars were not "handed down" from the Rio Grande Railroad, these were more or less recovered & rebuilt from 'non-railroad uses' such  as farm sheds etc. :o
