Enjoy one leg of your Silverton journey onboard a modern D&SNGRR bus as you travel along 52 miles of the San Juan Scenic Byway. This option offers you a different perspective of the majestic mountains.
Important to note: Due to the high elevation on the passes, there are often travel restrictions on commercial vehicles during the Autumn months. If there is a weather advisory, we reserve the right to cancel our busses. Alternate options will include riding the train round trip on the same date or riding the bus on another date.

Classes of Service
Once you've decided when you'll be in Durango, the next step in booking your steam rail adventure is choosing your car. With four classes of service, you are sure to find a car you'll love.
Take a ride on the Cinco Animas! The Victorian splendor of a bygone era awaits you onboard one of the most legendary and historic private cars to ever grace the narrow gauge rails. The Cinco Animas offers two distinctively appointed seating areas and a large outdoor viewing platform is exclusively available to those who choose this car. Click here for more information.
Ride in historic comfort and style on one of our First-Class cars. You will be hosted by a knowledgeable attendant who will provide complimentary morning pastries, non-alcoholic beverages and custom first-class amenities. Click here for more information.
The Rio Grande, the San Juan Coach, and Prospector Family Car are three of the most recently refurbished cars in our fleet. For those with families or just those looking for added comfort, these Premium options both offer larger seats and a more adult atmosphere than Standard class. Click here for more information.
Choose between vintage coach seating or open-air gondolas. Seat width in Standard-class is equal to the industry standard of an economy-class plane seat. Extra-space seating is available for an additional charge.

The narrators will relate their tales to you in first-person storytelling, dressed in period clothing to match their character. Click here for more information about the Historic Narration Coach
