Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Durango, Colorado

An unforgettable trip in any season, the journey from Durango to Silverton takes on a special glow in the fall. The whiffs of coal smoke and the steam train's gentle sways add to the magic of this Autumn rail excursion, but it is the Aspens that steal the show!

Deep within the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains' San Juan Range, the train follows a 130+ year-old route through Animas River Gorge, its rugged landscape painted with golden Aspens interspersed with dabs of orange and red. Trains also depart from Silverton.
