This is at the start of the route taken by the Durango-Silverton RR in Durango. Even the background scenery in the morning is great.

A word to the wise though, ride in the closed car if you don't want soot in your eyes or lunches!

Could be, I can't remember but sounds about right. This part of the state is pretty amazing!

I agree! I rafted through the very narrow Royal Gorge in Colorado with the railroad tracks nearby. Made for very interesting fun when the trains sounds competed with guide rafting commands!

Thanks for looking!
