we enjoyed this with the grandchildren. The displays are huge and the moving displays were a treat for the kids. The information and pictures were amazing and as I said FREE!
Took this train journey while visiting relatives in Colorado Sept/Oct 2013. There is NOTHING on this experience to dislike. The narrow gauge steam train and carriages transport you back to the days of gold mining and the real wild west of yesteryear. The scenery on the trip, as in all of Colorado, is to die for. The trains and rolling... More
We are locals, but locals and visitors alike will love this town and all it has to offer. The train is the quintessential to a visit to Durango. All else revolves around it for us! We love hearing the daily whistles as the train comes and goes.
Rode this train twice this particular weekend. First trip on Saturday was a regular excursion trip from Durango to the Cascade Canyon and turnaround wye.

The narration & history was fun and informative. We've ridden quite a few tourist... More

The town of Silverton, at the turn around point, was quaint and interesting. Our 3 year old granddaughter was with us. When we got back to... More

We enjoyed it so much we are going back for the 2014 Photographers Train and... More
