Durango & Silverton #473 releases her steam in dramatic fashion!Advertisement
Breath taking scenery AND a steam locomotive! It doesn’t get any better than this!
The Durango and Silverton Railroad has 3 K-28 Class 2-8-2 Mikado type locomotives. Although less powerful than tbeir K-36 cousins, these smaller locomotives were preferred by engineers because of their design and balance. Judging from the terrain that these locomotives needed to traverse, you can see why.
Let us know if you have had the chance to take this scenic excursion on the Durango & Silverton Railroad! We would love to hear about your experience!
