Durango-Silverton Steam Locomotive -- December 27th, 2009

Club Car on Durango-Silverton trainThis is the last car, what I call the observation car of the Durango-Silverton train in Colorado.  I had ridden this train the previous day, December 26th and December 27th I was just an observer, chasing the train from Durango to Rockwood, Colorado.

This 2-8-2 Narrow Gauge engine looks awesome against the beautiful blue sky, white snow and yellow cars.

Here was the picture from the other side of the bridge.  They also use this train for the Polar Express twice a night for part of December.

Hope your holidays were wonderful & I wish you a fantastic 2010!

I love riding on passenger trains through the mountains - with the scenery changing around every turn!  Great shots.

Liz I live an hour and a hlf from Silverton and never have done the train, Colorado native, now I am inspired to put it on our list of things to do. If you hit Montrose give us a call.

Liz, That is supposed to be an awesome train ride.  And how cool that it's used for the Polar Express!

What a beautiful train and piece of history.  It would be wonderful to take the family on a ride on this.

I've been on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad many times, first in July 1973 and most recently in July 1999. I've done both summer and winter rides, but I think I enjoy the summer rides better.

Happy New Year!

Liz - the glory days of steam - as a retired steamfitter I enjoy all the old trains and steam boats and paddle wheelers they have brought back as tourist attractions

Liz,  You have some great photos.  It sounds like a great train ride.  Another great train ride is the "Heber Creeper"  which is just a few miles from Park City, Utah.  I have ridden it and it was great.
