Built originally as a mining line - and after surviving natural disasters, wars, and financial instability - a determined Durango & Silverton staff promoted the tourism that ensured the line's survival to this day. Recognized as a National Historic Landmark, the railroad continues to provide year-round tourist service in the mountains of Colorado.
Now, you can run your own Durango & Silverton excursion railroad!

You also get a 47"x 38" oval of HO scale E-Z Track, a power pack/speed controller, and instructions. Full train measures 30" long and arrives ready to run.
