Silverton Train Ride?

Recommended Posts

Here you go..... http://www.durangotrain.com/


We have not taken the train but we've RV'd and did Jeep tours out of Silverton often. It's a fun little mining town. From what I've heard, take the train up and the bus back. In the mountains, rain rolls in in the afternoon and if you're in the open car of the train you can't move inside.


Haviland Lake national forest campground just north of Durango is very nice.

We rode the open car a couple weeks ago and I think we paid $89 each for our tickets but you can ride in enclesed cars that are more $$$ if you want. We camped outside of town and drove in and parked at a lot operated by the train station that cost us $8 to park for the day. We did see a couple motorhomes parked in the lot but can't tell you any more than that.

If you opt for the open car be sure to bring something like sunglasses because there is some soot that floats in the air behind the engine that can and will get in your eyes (neither of us had a problem but did see others that did that did not wear eye protection).
