Silverton Season May 6-Oct. 28, 2017
Ride a historic train on 45 miles of rails originally laid in 1882 between the mining town of Silverton and the railroad-built town of Durango, Colorado. Travel along the Animas River through wilderness unaccessible by any road! Choose between the 9-hour ROUND TRIP SILVERTON TRAIN TOUR or the varying schedule of a combination train and bus journey on the SKYWAY TOUR.
SKYWAY TOUR -preferred by many!
Enjoy one leg of your Silverton journey onboard a modern D&SNGRR 53-passenger bus as you travel 52 miles of magnificent mountain terrain on US Highway 550's scenic San Juan Skyway. 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 Spring and 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.
