Just a quick note that there are still some tickets available for Saturday August 24th trip to Silverton; this will likely be the last opportunity to ride behind #18 in Colorado. Go to www.durangotrain.com to buy yours!
August 15th was a significant day as #18 made its first trip to Silverton. #18 was the first 4-6-0 locomotive to travel to Silverton since the RGS 20 – as Emma Sweeny – was there in 1949 for the filming of Ticket to Tomahawk. #18 was also the first oil burning locomotive to be in Silverton. It was a day of first for sure!
