“We’re excited to continue the Blues Train in its sixth year aboard the historic railroad.” said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train (and Telluride Blues & Brews). “We have some incredible musicians booked for the 2016 event.”

The trip begins at the historic train depot at 7:00 p.m., when the steam engine fires up and it’s all aboard. En route, passengers get to experience breathtaking canyon views of Colorado’s San Juan National Forest as the train winds onto the “Highline,” a world-famous section of railroad crawling along cliffs high above the Animas River. The train returns to the depot in Durango at approximately 10:20 p.m.

Besides the music, guests get to enjoy beverages, including beer and wine, and light snacks.
