Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This travel video takes the viewer for a train ride aboard the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, in southwestern Colorado. Embarking from beautiful Durango, the steam-powered train leaves the Animas Valley and climbs on narrow gauge tracks into the San Juan Mountains, traversing some of the most rugged country in America. At the other end is the mining town of Silverton, which retains its turn-of-the-century charm.
