Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge

Share to

After World War II, passenger traffic started to increase on the narrow gauge railroad line from Durango to Silverton. By the 1960s, the railroad was actively courting tourists, and after Silverton's last major mine closed in 1991, the railroad's steady stream of tourists helped the town survive.
