I first heard about this train ride from my brother in 2010. He said it was "drop dead gorgeous". I saw an image of it in an art show and talked to the photographer about it. In 2012 I wanted to ride the Durango & Silverton train and, of course, photograph the beautiful scenery. and the train.
This railroad is historic. It was founded by the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad in 1880. The tracks were completed in 1882 and the train began hauling passengers and gold and silver ore from the mines near Durango and the San Juan Mountains. The train has been in continuous operation since 1882. It runs 45 miles from Durango to Silverton Colorado It is now a year-round tourist attraction using 1923 vintage steam engines, and period classic passenger cars. It has a long history that one can read online. It was even used by Hollywood in movies such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
The photo in this blog was shot after careful planning when buying our tickets, I sat in an open-sided gondola car 6 cars behind the old steam engine #482. This way I had a great unobstructed view of the mountain scenery, and of course the front of the train as it rounded curves. That is how I was able to capture this photograph which is also featured on my website under USA Photographs. I am currently showing it in April of 2018 at the Municipal Art Gallery in Escondido, CA.
