Scenic Round Trip Silverton Train
8:00am / Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Embark on an Incredible Journey Through the San Juan Mountains!   For a truly unforgettable step back in time, enjoy a leisurely trip to yesteryear riding 3 1/2 hours each way on this steam train plus spend 2 hours in the historic mining town of Silverton to enjoy the sights, shopping, food, and libations that Silverton offers. We’ve been in continuous operation running train excursions on this 45-mile spur of the Denver & Rio Grande rail line since 1882. Much of the scenery remains unchanged since then. There’s no cell service or Wi-Fi through much of the terrain so you’ll be unplugged from the modern world. Soak in the views, listen as the steam whistle echoes through the canyon, hear the vintage locomotive work to pull the train up the grades. If you long to unwind and enjoy Colorado nature at its finest, this is the trip for you.

Fall Photographer's Special
9:30am / Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Join us for a unique and truly spectacular Fall Photo Special featuring both Southern Pacific 18, on its farewell tour before returning home to California, and Galloping Goose #5 which hails from Dolores, Colorado.   Unlike the regular excursion trains, Photographer Special Trains allow you to de-board at pre-determined locations along the route to experience the pure majesty of early autumn in the San Juan Mountains, form a photo line as the train backs up and out of sight and with two blasts of the whistle, proceed forward steaming past you, shutters clicking and video rolling! Opportunities abound to photograph these historically significant trains against a backdrop of the high mountain peaks of the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado while enjoying the vibrant autumn colors and the free-flowing Animas River! This will be a trip where you will make lifelong memories!   Reservations will be taken by phone only. Please call 1-888-872-4607.
