The Durango & Silverton offers one of the most spectacular train rides in North America. Steep grades, sharp curves, narrow ledges, and perilous chasms are the hallmarks of this popular narrow gauge tourist railroad. Much of the route can only be accessed by train, and the pristine beauty of southwestern Colorado’s San Juan Range remains hidden to all but the railroad’s crews and travelers. It is a wonderful ride! Over three years in the making, this show takes you into the heart of the Durango & Silverton line.

You’ll see all the famous locations: the breathtaking Highline balancing 400 feet above the River of the Lost Souls, the Narrows, Rockwood Cut with its huge red granite rock formations, and Silverton, perched at an elevation of 9,288 feet. Mikado steam locomotives are seen hard at work throughout the tourist seasons and there are exquisite scenes of a rare winter excursion when the landscape is blanketed with snow. Touring the train yards and servicing areas, filled with restored historic equipment, is reminiscent of the early days of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Here are the scenic wonders of narrow gauge railroading through the Rockies as few have seen them.

    All I can say about this Dvd are the memories I have riding this train from Silverton to Durango. The scenery is so amazing, some of the cars are open air cars so you get a better view, and yes there are good curves, shear drop offs . Yes it is a narrow gauge train. It takes about 4 hours to get to Durango. All in all I would recommend this Dvd to anyone who lives trains. 5 stars for this one.
