We spent a few hours today at the Durango Roundhouse Museum with the family. The museum is free and has an impressive collection of historical miniatures, several layouts and lots of historical goodies to explore.

Hoping to be in Durango next month. I was feeling a bit sad that I probably won't have time to ride the train, but maybe I can get this in.

Wow…this is impressive!

Well worth the visit. The museum is free.

We did do the train ride as well. Lessons learned:

1) Go first class and gets seats on right side of the car for the best view.
We did the first class and lucked out on the right side. You are the last car on the train and can get great views from you seat or go on the rear viewing platform.

2) Take the train up and the bus back. Train ride about 3 hours and bus about 1 hour.

Wanted to go this weekend. Trains to Silverthorne are completely booked for the rest of the season they told us. Hotel rooms in Durango are sky high in price and vacancies are scarce. Guess I am glad we called ahead for it is about a 4+ hour trip from Aurora. I would have been very angry and disappointed had I not called ahead. Just a word of warning and perhaps you have better luck with reservations than I did.

Wow, I love that western town. Great place for a 25mm cowboy game!
