It is an unforgettable evening of entertainment riding on a piece of history, a  100+- year-old Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge steam-powered train.

This 3½-hour excursion begins when the train leaves the depot at 7:00 p.m. (MST). In addition to the music, passengers get to experience the spectacular canyon views of the breathtaking “Highline” canyon of Colorado’s San Juan National Forest, a world-famous section of railroad on the cliffs above the Animas River. Being a fan of the music just adds value to an experience, which clearly transcends the blues.

“We are excited once again to bring the Blues Train to Durango. Each year the train grows in popularity. The August event has performers from as far away as Texas and Minnesota – a testament to how unique this moving experience is,” said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train. “Hop aboard and join some of the Nation’s premier folk and blues musicians on this rolling party.”
