Please read: Effective March 1 2023, we will raise our shipping charges. We have absorbed several postal increases during the past couple years and it is time to make a change. There will not be much change for those ordering on-line as the web calculates shipping charges based on weight, distance, and class of mail service.


For mail and phone orders, charges are based on the number of items ordered, not weight. Charges for single-item orders will increase from $6 to $7. Additional items will be charged at $2 per item. For example, if you order a single DVD, the charge will be $7. If you order two, it will be $9. This will also give us the opportunity to send more items via priority mail. (Last year, all multiple 2023 calendar mail orders were sent priority mail, greatly reducing shipping time and mis-handling.)


We have received back from dealers six (6) 2023 Rio Grande calendars. They are available only for on-line orders, one to a customer.

The Durango & Silverton offers one of the most spectacular train rides in North America. Steep grades, sharp curves, narrow ledges, and perilous chasms are the hallmarks of this popular narrow gauge tourist railroad. Much of the route can only be accessed by train, and the pristine beauty of southwestern Colorado's San Juan Range remains hidden to all but the railroad's crews and travelers.

Over three years in the making, this show takes you into the heart of the Durango &amp Silverton line. You'll see all the famous locations: the breathtaking Highline balancing 400 feet above the River of the Lost Souls, the Narrows, Rockwood Cut with its huge red granite rock formations, and Silverton, perched at an elevation of 9,288 feet. Mikado steam locomotives are seen hard at work throughout the tourist seasons and there are exquisite scenes of a rare winter excursion when the landscape is blanketed with snow. Touring the train yards and servicing areas, filled with restored historic equipment, is reminiscent of the early days of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Here are the scenic wonders of narrow gauge railroading through the Rockies as few have seen them.
