I rode the Durango to Silverton narrow gauge train "photo" tour October of 2022. The train stopped several time for us photographers to take photos. It was strenuous and fun. We had to set up fast on each stop.  Here's a sample of the ol' 476 powering down the line!  I have two YouTube videos covering the train.  Please click the YouTube icon at the bottom of this page to watch them.

The train had briefly stopped on a bridge overlooking the Animas River.  I hustled back to an open view railroad car and shot this moments before the train plowed ahead.  I count myself as in the right place at the right time.

The 476 pulling into Silverton as she completes the first half of our adventure!

The Animas River runs alongside the train which results in a pleasing shot!
