Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Photos. Here, D&SNG #473 rounds a curve on a very steep shelf above the Animas River. This is referred to as the "High Line" and is one of the most spectacular rail locations in North America. If you look closely at the door of the "Home Ranch" Combine Car, Santa Claus is waving giving Christmas Eve Greetings.
Silverton Colorado, one of the most beautiful places on earth, I think. D&SNG trains do not usually run to Silverton in the winter, the snow is usually prohibitively deep. 1999-2000 winter is an exception.
