Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad

Guests of Durango's Blue Lake Ranch enjoy a delightful trip into the past on the Durango & Silverton Railroad.  This scenic journey on Durango’s historic coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive is a local and tourist favorite, perfect for travelers of all ages!  This full day experience takes you deep into the beautiful San Juan mountain range, with a two hour stop in Silverton, Colorado, a quaint historic mining town.  .


The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge was established in 1882 and offered a beautiful trip for passengers, as well as an efficient way to transport ore, gold, and silver from the Silverton mines to the larger township of Durango.  


A day spent on the Durango Train, is most definitely a day well spent, and memory that will be cherished.
