Steam Engine In Colorado
Photograph - Photography Art
Captured as the Steam Engine leaves the Silverton, Colorado Depot.
Two Engineers return from a break to check on the rails and to continue the trip into Durango.
Durango, Colorado was founded by the Denver & Rio Grande Railway in 1879. The railroad arrived in Durango on August 5, 1881 and construction on the line to Silverton began in the fall of the same year. By July of 1882, the tracks to Silverton were completed, and the train began hauling both freight and passengers.
The line was constructed to haul silver & gold ore from Southwest Colorado's San Juan Mountains, but passengers soon realized it was the view that was truly precious.
This historic train has been in continuous operation between Durango and Silverton since 1882, carrying passengers behind vintage steam locomotives and rolling stock indigenous to the line. It is a family-friendly ride sure to create memories that will last a lifetime while offering a view of Colorado's mountain splendor inaccessible by highway. Relive the sights and sounds of yesteryear for a spectacular journey on board the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
Railroad, or locomotive, engineers drive passenger and freight trains. They monitor equipment to ensure that the train is operating correctly and safely. Railroad engineers also communicate with passengers, crew and dispatchers to maintain timeliness and safety.
