Durango & Silverton Railroad & Museum

After the trip to Silverton, we returned to the depot the following morning to tour the museum. As we arrived, the first run to Silverton that day was getting ready to depart. After the train left, we entered the museum which is in a portion of the roundhouse. The other part of the roundhouse was not open to visitors but we were able to peek out a rear door and see the turntable and some equipment stored nearby.
