About Durango And Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad And Museum, Durango

The mountains surrounding Durango form a super-picturesque route for the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Strapped in the wilderness of the San Juan National Forest, one of the prime reasons why this railroad is so popular is because of the spectacular views the passengers can see from the train. The locomotive used in this track has not been changed and is the same 1880s original. With so many awe-inspiring reasons, this railroad has been listed in some of the world’s best train rides. To learn more about the history of this train line and its purpose, there are the railroad museums both in Durango and Silverton that will tell you all about what goes between them. The museums were created in 1998.

  • Making reservations is simple and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The train ride to Cascade Canyon is great! They offer events through the year such as Polar Express, Pumpkin Patch and the Christmas Tree Train which we take part in. It is a fun ride for the whole family. There is an observation car and a snack car for good drinks, lunch and souvenirs. The break-men come through regularly and explain the area, the function of the train etc. It's great to see the folks in period costume come through and give tidbits of history and stories. It's a great experience.

  • Magic in every way. That we have a treasure like this is a thanks to the owner and workers that keep it alive. It is like walking back in time and about the most spectacular ride you will ever take. Historic in ever way can be. Also the Polar Express we took again in 2017 season and was better than ever!!!! Thank you so much DNGR!!!!

  • We came here specifically for the Polar Express and we were far from disappointed! This station not only had an amazing steam locomotive that had old fashion seats that flip and face one another in the coach we reserved,great if you have kids, but they also do these great skits from the movie. The best parts were the chefs dancing and bringing hot chocolate while playing the song, sharing the story book in sections during the trip, seeing the conductor and his wise cracks, and Santa coming on board and listening to the kids wishes and giving them a sleigh bell. Pretty special. Also you get a gift bag and can see Santa at the station after your trip to the north pole. Well worth it. Kids and adults loved loved loved it! Shout out to our British chefs thanks for hot chocolate and cookies.

  • The trip on this train was amazing. We did the full trip to Silverton and back. Paid Parking was easy. There is a McDonald's next to the train station and they let you bring food and drinks on to the train. Make reservations before you go. You will not regret this trip, worth the money, kids love it, and we had great time. Staff was amazing. Lots of History, make sure you visit the museum located behind and across from the train station.

  • Let me just say that I had a blast! I did have a few very terrible experiences but I tend to block out the trauma. I loved the atmosphere and the views. Obviously I'm not from Durango so it was a real treat for me. They have an open air cart where you can stand and get a real feel for the surrounding area. The only thing I HATED was the gigantic(25 person) family that was shoved in the same cart as us. They were very impolite and simply did not comprehend American etiquette when in public.
