DURANGO, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Durango's early years take center stage at the True West Railfest, August 14 - 17, 2014. Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and True West Magazine partner for a four-day celebration of railroading, mining, history and all things Western. The event kicks off with the Presidential Reception at the Strater Hotel the evening of Thursday, August 14. There are family friendly activities and events throughout True West Railfest, including a Wild West show at the Henry Strater Theatre, a Railroadiana swap meet at the D&SNGRR, and a street dance in front of the Durango Depot. The Wild West celebration concludes with the True West Rodeo finale at the La Plata County Fairgrounds.
This year's line-up of special railroading excursions includes a first-ever D&SNGRR Work Train, giving passengers the opportunity to watch Maintenance of Way crewmembers perform actual work along the line. Passengers will see switching on a wye, pulling of ties and spiking new ties, dumping ballast, unloading of an excavator and dozer from flat cars, while having the chance to photograph these activities. The train will also do "run-bys", allowing people to film or photograph as the train steams by. Excursions on the Rio Grande Southern's Galloping Goose #5 will be offered throughout the four days, with trips to Silverton and Railroad Event Park. The signature excursion, the Presidential Train, consisting of Presidential, First-Class and Deluxe-class cars, provides comfort and luxury with onboard entertainment and a farm-to-table lunch at the Cascade Canyon Pavilion.
