The weekend after our conference, the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad will be offering their Annual Fall Photographer’s Train Rides. That’s Saturday and Sunday, September 26-27, departing from Durango, about 70 miles south of Ouray via US 550.
Unlike the regular passenger trains, these trains will stop at several pre-determined places to allow photographers to detrain, after which the locomotive will back up out of sight, and after two whistle blasts, come steaming back past the line of photographers – all against the backdrop of fall foliage in the San Juans. A wonderful opportunity for both still and video photography.
