Cascade Canyon Express

July 23 - August 14, 2019

Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad • 479 Main Ave, Durango, CO 81301

Event Description

New for 2019, the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad has introduced the Cascade Canyon Express, a brand-new excursion series set to begin on June 17 and run through August 14. Specifically designed for today’s busy travelers, the Cascade Canyon Express is the Durango train’s shortest non-special event excursion ever offered in the railroad’s illustrious history at just under two hours in duration.

Departing the railroad's Rockwood station at 11:10 a.m., the Cascade Canyon Express winds through the scenic canyons and along the high mountain curves of the pristine San Juan National Forest to Cascade Canyon, and then returns along the same route to Rockwood by 1:00 p.m.

For several years now, many guests have requested shorter excursions, so we developed the Cascade Canyon Express as a viable solution for those travelers who desire the historic scenic railroad experience on the D&SNGRR line, but have limited time for various reasons. In addition, the Cascade Canyon Express is also an affordable, flexible option for riding the D&SNGRR, with its late-morning departure time, and coach and gondola fares at substantially lower rates than those for round trips to Silverton. Based on consumer sentiment and demand, we fully expect the Cascade Canyon Express to be an immediate hit with summer travelers, particularly families with small children.Allen C. Harper, DSNGR
