Review of D&S Railfest 2010 DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad operates one of best steam tourist railroads in the world, some 45 miles each way from Durango to Silverton, Colorado in the Rockies. During the D&S Railfest 2010, 3 additional pieces of motive power visited the railroad for rare operational use. These included Eureka and Palisade 4-4-0 number 4 built in 1875 and Denver and Rio Grande Western 2-8-0 number 315 built in 1895. In addition to those two, we see and ride Rio Grande Southern Galloping Goose number 5. If that were not enough we enjoy regular D&S passenger trains, and some D&S special trains with Green coaches. This includes both K-28 and K-36 2-8-2's. There is a wealth of material here with unusual runbys from the charter trains, meets with other trains, and some of the best scenery that is only accessible by doing the special charters.

Some of the charter trains were ridden, and one partial day there was chasing. There is also a day riding the Goose 5, and special runbys
