Durango to Silverton
Arrive in Durango to pick up your tickets at the train station (arrive at least 1 hour before departure to collect tickets). The "ALL ABOARD" call and two blows of the whistle signal the start of your journey. Over the next 3.5 hours you will be treated to spectacular mountain and canyon scenery. Upon arriving in Silverton you will have the afternoon and evening free to relax or partake in optional activities, such as 4WD touring, gold mine tours, horseback riding, or other fun activities. Just check with the hotel upon arriving. Overnight at the historic Grand Imperial Hotel in downtown Silverton.
Silverton to Durango
You have the morning free to savor Silverton or go on one of the many optional tours which can be arranged by the hotel staff. We highly recommend taking a 4WD trip into the mountains or other adventurous activity. The hotel can even arrange half day Jeep rentals. After lunch (not included), you board the train for your return trip to Durango. Upon arrival, this memorable trip comes to a close.
