The historical railway was constructed to haul gold and silver from the San Juan Mountains, a rugged1 range in the Colorado Rockies. Today the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge2 Railroad continues to provide year-round train service but solely3 for passengers not freight. While much has changed in the state over the last century, the scenery and the trains have pretty much stayed the same.

The fire, er, when it's going real hot, you gotta feed it a lot of coal, so it is almost like it's eating. Er...it gets real thirsty, so it drinks a lot of water, easily about 12,000 gallons of water on a round-trip so ..um, you know the way they are kinda like a creature, so....

Wildlife, flowing rivers and glacier-capped mountains are among the many attractions that draw an estimated 200,000 passengers a year. For tourists like Lindle Turner. and Terrans Camp, it's the history of the train, a time machine of sorts, that amazes them.

Well, it kinda of sets you foot, puts you back in the past, really. I mean ,does, basically, this hasn't changed since the 1800. I think it's a romance, isn't it? The, the power, the steam train really evokes4 a feeling of power and strength. You can see the whole thing, it's more muscular.

Engineer Steve Orton sees the railroad as a symbol of pride, representing a piece of yesteryear with visions for the future. It's a great piece of history of our country ...ah, my father, and my grandfather or my grandfather used to work for the railroad and my father, and I, my brothers used to watch it run through the valley when I was a kid. I would like to see my children's children see it run also.

John Belmont, the Associated Press.
