You might recognise it from many starring roles in Hollywood films, the Durango & Silverton is a passenger service train that people cannot get enough of. Constructed with the intention of being a mining line train, its strengths quickly shone through and has since belonged to the passenger service. Recognised as a National Historic Landmark and National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark for its efforts in surviving several natural disasters, wars and economic instabilities, the Durango & Silverton isn’t planning on going anywhere soon.
