Cliff Runner by DragonWolfACe Cliff Runner by DragonWolfACe
This is the first of two trains the Durango and Silverton ran to Silverton on this day. This is the more typical angle and only 500 feet from this shot.

I am standing on the only rock that hangs out on this side of the tracks. A tiny cut almost. Behind me, the tracks take a sharp turn as it follow the Animas river, which, is two feet to my left and two hundred feet down!

That is a fantastic shot!

Aged into sepia this could be something from the Wild West!

Ah! Kick-ass!

1920s built steam locomotive, early 1900s styled coaches, wonder scenery = Amazing!

It looks just perfect!
Well, if only I imagined Amtrak running much of these.
LOL
