In this 2 minute video clip, Jim Zura has compiled a small example of the big adventure that awaits aboard the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad as it winds its way through breath-taking mountain scenery along the Animas River in Southwest Colorado. As the name implies, the round-trip journey originates in Durango and treks – 48 miles north and 3,000 feet higher – to Silverton, a town with a permanent population of about 600, anchored, in part, by the Grand Imperial Hotel. There you can frequently enjoy, live, the musical stylings of Lacey Black.
(“Foamers” or “ferroequinologists” – extreme railfans – may notice something about the engine. If you do, send a comment.)
