New Year’s Day Brunch Train

Monday, January 1, 2018 • $36 – $169

Event Description

For a trip reminiscent of turn-of-the-century travel, start the New Year onboard the D&SNG steam-powered train. Standard class and Premium class seating is available. Our Premium-class passengers can enjoy a delicious hot brunch buffet and live music while traveling through the pristine winter wonderland along the Animas River to Cascade Canyon wye.

Premium Class Guests

We'll greet you at the depot and welcome you onboard the New Year's Day Train where you'll find a beautifully catered hot brunch. As we roll through the Animas Valley and high above the river, our strolling musician will sing some favorite songs. Enjoy complimentary non-alcoholic beverages throughout the trip and a complimentary glass of champagne or sparkling cider to toast in the New Year. During a 45-minute stop along the river at the Cascade Canyon wye you can stroll to the footbridge, warm your hands by the rock fireplace in the pavilion or sit and relax in the comfort of your car without stepping foot outside into the snowy wonderland. On the return to Durango you will be offered a scrumptious dessert buffet.
