ATTENTION, PASSENGERS: Your perfect Halloween experience is about to leave the station. Our train excursions to Silverton and Cascade Canyon offer front-row views of the diverse and dramatic landscapes of Durango, from the stunning color changes along the Animas River Valley to the jagged peaks of the San Juan Mountains. Experiencing our quintessential mountain town is a once-in-a-lifetime treat, but the real trick to seeing Southwest Colorado in all its glory is winding through narrow mountain canyons, aboard the train.
Sign up for these wicked-fun events… while there’s still time.

Don’t forget your Halloween outfit for a chance to win Best Costume!
