Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in Durango, Colorado provides the thrills along its beautiful and perilous gorge route

Inaccessible by road, the Animas River Gorge daunted 19th-century engineers charged with tethering this narrow gauge railway to its fragile wall. Today, vintage steam locomotives take riders on a heart-pounding journey around a treacherous high line curve and across a wood-decked high bridge to the old gold rush town of Silverton, now a mountain recreation center.
