Review of Snowstorm in the San Juans Vol 1 Winter on the Durango & Silverton 2-Disc DVD

This is a 2 DVD set that looks at winter operations on the Durango & Silverton in 2018/19. It begins with a look at the Cascade Canyon train after the first major snowstorm of the season in late December, followed by the Winter Photographer's weekend in February with visiting Southern Pacific 4-6-0 #18. In addition to the photo trains, three separate flanger runs are covered along with the regular trains to Cascade. The last part of the program looks at a few of the first trips to Silverton in early May, as plenty of snow still lingered in the Animas Canyon.

Total running time: 2 hours 23 minutes
