Review of Steam to Silverton - A Fantastic Colorado Steam Train Ride DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
In the middle of September we ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad between both those towns in the Colorado Rockies. Located near the four corners region of Southwestern Colorado this 45 mile former branch line of the Denver and Rio Grande Western railroad has operated continually since 1882. Today we ride in the glass- topped premium car, the "Knight Sky", and we capture for you the majority of the highlights along the journey. With great views through the windows and ceiling one can see pretty well. However, we shot most of the footage from the end platforms where the view is better and allows us to see not only the scenery but the engine and train ahead of us in the scenery. There are great views looking along the highline cliff, down into the Animas Gorge, crossing High Bridge(One of 5 bridges), and following the Animas River close-enough you can hear the roaring rapids next to us. We also stop several times for water and to drop off some passengers. Our locomotive
