Welcome to The Tall Timber Legend
A new way to ride the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
...the Tall Timber Legend.
This first class train car adds luxury and comfort to this scenic Colorado train ride on the vintage 1880s-era steam locomotive. Departing from either the Durango station or the Rockwood station your train trip takes you through the beautiful San Juan Mountains and into the old-west town of Silverton.
The Tall Timber Legend train car features family-friendly seating, ticketless travel, open seating for up to 30 people in comfort and style, and operates mid-May through mid-October. The historic train line has been in continuous operation, using coal-powered steam trains, since 1882.
