Knight Sky


The Knight Sky offers an open-air experience; windows are removed for the entire summer/fall season (through October) so that you can enjoy the fresh mountain air experience.  

The Knight Sky was built in Durango and put into service in May 2012. Styled after the popular glass-domed Silver Vista, additional extravagances include leather-trimmed first-class seats and a closed vestibule which boasts the largest viewing platform on the railroad! Of course the main selling point is the endless overhead panorama of the San Juan Mountains viewed through the UV-protected glass-paneled roof. All ages are welcome on the Knight Sky.

Please note that because this is an open-air car, we suggest that you dress in layers in preparation for unpredictable mountain weather. Sunglasses are recommended as well.

Besides the great view, amenities include a souvenir mug refillable with non-alcoholic beverages all day, a large D&S tote bag per couple/group and an attendant to serve your favorite libations!

Sunglasses are highly recommended to protect eyes from possible particulates in the air. Safety glasses are available for purchase in the gift shop and onboard the train. We recommend wearing a hat for protection from the high altitude Colorado sun! Order a train hat here or visit our Gift Shop in the Durango depot for more choices!
