Visit scenic Colorado and New Mexico and the lines of the former Denver & Rio Grande Western for three different narrow gauge adventures.
First, you’re in Durango, Colorado where the famous Durango & Silverton has been back-dated to the 1930’s, with a mixed train and passenger train complete with the old green passenger cars. It is the winter season, and you just might want to bundle up in front of your screen as you enjoy many runbys in the rugged Animas River Canyon.
Next, you’re in Chama, New Mexico, where the Cumbres & Toltec is training new engineers and firemen using a freight train. You’ll enjoy the action as the train climbs the steep 4 percent grade to Cumbres Pass.
Last but not least, take a peek into the very early days of railroading as Eureka & Palisade #4, the Eureka visits the Durango & Silverton. Built in 1875, this fully operational 4-4-0 takes you back to a time where the locomotive was as fancy as it could be. You’re on-board and trackside as the Eureka makes the trip from Durango all the way to Silverton.
