The Durango Silverton Train ride has got to be one of the most scenic rides in America. We went September 13, 2006. The leaves were stating to turn, the scenery was unbelievable, the train followed the Animas river between mountains 14,000 ft high. The steam engine was great, the passenger cars were wonderful and we sat on the right side of the train going to Silverton which had the best views. We opted to take the bus back and that was a great idea because it was a totally different route going way up high over the mountains. The bus driver was a great tour guide and also works as a brakeman for the train so was very knowledgable. The town of Silverton is such a cool, old western town full of shops and places to eat with 14,000 ft mountains as a backdrop! I highly recommend this trip.
