Mudslide Interrupts Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Again

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) – Another mudslide has interrupted service on a tourist train that runs between Durango and Silverton.

Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad spokeswoman Andrea Seid says about 425 passengers were bused back to Durango or took a late train out of Silverton.

According to the Durango Herald, Monday’s slide occurred about 10 miles south of Silverton in the same location as an Aug. 2 slide that covered the tracks for five days.
