Durango Heritage Train

Dgo Heritage boarding

Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to experience an 1880’s steam train ride into the Old West. Authentic, historic rail cars full of stylishly dressed Victorians, cowboys and cowgirls make their way north from Durango into untamed territories ruled by robbers and bandits. Famous, as well as infamous, old west characters are known to travel this route. Bring your sense of adventure and get ready for a fun journey into the past. (Victorian or Old West costume is required for this event). As usual, we have to be on the lookout for robbers when we ride the Heritage Train. Experience has shown that they're getting more aggressive every year!
"Silver" and "gold" coins can again be purchased at the depot prior to departure as insurance for a safe journey. If you should find it necessary to pay for your safety with your silver or gold coins, you can know your investment goes for more than your own well being. Any loot taken on the train will find its way to the non-profit Animas Museum.
