Facility:Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Description:Durango was founded by the Denver & Rio Grande Railway in 1879. The railroad arrived in Durango on August 5, 1881 and construction on the line to Silverton began in the fall of the same year. By July of 1882 (amazingly, only 9 months after construction began) the tracks to Silverton were completed, and the train began hauling both freight and passengers.
News Flash! D&SNGRR Featured on Good Morning America! View the story and watch the video. The line was constructed to haul silver & gold ore from the San Juan Mountains, but passengers soon realized it was the view that was truly precious.

This historic train has been in continuous operation for 126 years, carrying passengers behind vintage steam locomotives and rolling stock indigenous to the line. Relive the sights and sounds of yesteryear for a spectacular journey on board the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Very pricey, but worth it if you have extra lying around. The view is fantastic. You will not be bored. I have been on other steam engines and this is the best by far. The scenery makes the difference. Be sure to take your camera.

The best and most beautiful train ride I have ever been on. The scenery is breath taking. I have taken my oldest child more than once and can't wait to take the littler ones. It's worth the money and the time.
