Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum
 
Welcome to the 2018 Silverton Season
Start your summer on the right track
It's the 20th year the Harper family have been caretakers of our railroad, and we're celebrating by encouraging a digital detox for our riders. When you step on board our steam train, take a moment for yourself. Unplug. Relax. Reconnect with nature. Share the moment with loved ones or new friends. Enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Colorado and the thrill of the adventure — even if it's just for a moment.

Lifetime memories are created from beautiful moments. Hop on board and experience them.

OUR FAVORITE WAYS TO DIGITAL DETOX
 
WILDERNESS ACCESS
We’re the only train in the continental U.S. that that offers accessible wilderness adventures. Passengers love to use our train to access the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness for backpacking, day hiking, fishing and other river activities.
