Durango And Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad And Museum - Review
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.

Durango And Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad And Museum, Durango Reviews
It's been 20 years since I rode the Durango Silverton Train! I did First Class Round-trip....Totally worth it! Comfortable seating, quiet and peaceful setting and a great way to enjoy and take photos along the way and on the way back! It looks different both ways, your one assigned seat gives you a different view each way! Staff were great and it was really a nice ride with beautiful mountains, streams and trees all along the way! Make time and take the Train! Nothing better than a steam train! Enjoy!
This train ride was such a fun way to spend a morning! We'd been once before when they did a murder mystery and loved it so much we couldn't resist going back. It is an experience full of history and beautiful scenery. I wish they'd do more murder mystery rides. Plus there was some random guy that would follow the train along the tracks, much to our surprise, to wave at the people riding it. They have a charming museum dedicated to the railway as well. Fun for all ages!
Riding on a train powered by steam...awesome! Staff were great! Ride is very, very long...5 hours one way to Silverton. DON'T ride in the standard (cheap) seats... you'll get cinders all over if you open a window, and there's very limited view. Take the bus back.. the views are epic! Only 1 hour ride back to Durango!
Too long! The train only covers 45 miles in 4 hours. Too many people squished together on the open gondola and a lady had a seat with a crack in it! So uncomfortable. Other than that. Pretty sights. Just not necessary to be seeing it one mile per hour..
I had the tickets in my hand but unfortunately our dog sitter didn't show up! I tried to go twos years ago and my dog fell sick. I will still give it a good review because of the trip I had years ago and everyone that got to do today's trip said it was fantastic! They said it was amazing because they had a professor of film. This professor shared the history of films that were made in this area. Now that I wrote this review I'm even madder! I guess the poor college student isn't poor enough that he probably slept through his alarm and missed some good money for a job he could not complete. Oh well, I have to let it go.
