Looking for opinions on the following itinerary from folks who know the area and the logistics of riding the narrow gauge railroad to the Needleton trailhead:
Is it a reasonable itinerary to climb at least two of either Eolus, Windom, or Sunlight on a one night backpacking trip? I would ride the train from Durango to the Needleton stop on Friday and head up the trail, possibly climbing one peak that afternoon/evening if the whether is good. In the morning I would climb another one or two and head out to try and catch the train. Has anybody done something similar that can comment? Looks like I should group Sunlight and Windom together. What little I have found seems to show that the train drops off at Needleton around 11:30 am and picks up from Needleton around 3:30 pm. Can anybody verify this? The schedule is not currently on the train website.
