Review of Narrow Gauge Adventure Denver & Rio Grande Western DVD

 4.3 of 5 (3)
Visit scenic Colorado and New Mexico and the lines of the former Denver & Rio Grande Western for three different narrow gauge adventures!

First, you're in Durango, Colorado where the famous Durango & Silverton has been back-dated to the 1930's, with a mixed train and passenger train complete with the old green passenger cars. It's the winter season, and you just might want to bundle up in front of your screen as you enjoy many runbys in the rugged Animas River Canyon

Next, you're in Chama, New Mexico, where the Cumbres & Toltec is training new engineers and firemen using a freight train. You'll enjoy the action as the train climbs the steep 4 percent grade to Cumbres Pass, another glimpse into the old times.

Last but not least, take a peek into the very early days of railroading as Eureka & Palisade #4, the "Eureka" visits the Durango & Silverton. Built in 1875, this fully operational 4-4-0 takes you back to a time where the locomotive was as fancy as it could be.
