I've been hearing about the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad for quite a while. Maybe it was a Travel Channel feature, but I've always wanted to see what it was all about. I finally got my chance. Photography (or at least good photography) I found to be kind of difficult from the moving train, and although I took over 500 pictures I only had a few that I thought were half-way decent.
Here's the train as it is going around a corner so sharp that it allows the back cars to see the engine clearly.
Regardless of my inability to take good pictures from a moving train, I highly recommend this trip. Two recommendations: dress warm, and be ready for soot.
