Which train to Silverton and when is the elk rut?

Any recommendations on whether to take the San Juan Coach or the Silver Vista deluxe train car to Silverton? Likely taking the bus back. Right side on the way up, left on the way down, correct?

We will be there September 17 - 23, are the elk rutting then?

Will the aspen be turning by then?

Thanks!

Aspens should be changing in that time frame in the higher elevations but mid and lower elevations may not have much going on...

Elk rutting... Yes, but, unlike Estes Park, they don't hang out in the area to have their pictures taken and are a bit more elusive... you may have to work to find them :-)
