Narrow Gauge Day

May 3, 2024


Narrow Gauge Day! Help us celebrate as we begin another season of continuous train operation between Durango and Silverton since 1882. Join in the fun and festivities on Friday (Narrow Gauge Day). Silverton summer train season begins May 4.

Friday, May 3rd is Narrow Gauge Day!


We’ll kick off summer with the annual FREE PICNIC and community celebration at the Durango depot. Our volunteer staff will be grilling hot dogs for members of the community. Enjoy a hot dog, chips, cookie and soda while jamming to the Bar-D Wranglers who will be performing on the lawn in front of the depot.

There will also be a live broadcast by Four Corners Broadcasting from 11am-1pm.

Celebrate the kickoff to summer and help out United Way.  You can purchase raffle tickets from them for a Trek Allant +8S Commuter/Cargo Bike.

Interesting railroad equipment will be on display including the Galloping Goose and select cars from the Presidential Train.

Galloping Goose #5  roundtrip rides to the Event Park will be available for booking ($35. + 8% historic preservation fee).

Tours will be available and we invite you to visit the free D&SNG Railroad Museum where new exhibits are added regularly. The model train is beloved by kids of all ages and is continually receiving enhancements. Also, be sure to check out the Animas River Display featuring a 600 gallon aquarium currently stocked with rainbow trout.

Representatives from Pet Pantry, United Way and others will be on hand to share information about their organizations. Pet Pantry will be accepting pet food donations.

Hope to see you at the depot on May 3rd!
