Travels with Thomas

Thomas the Tank Engine rolled back into town last week, much to the delight of hundreds of his young fans, who packed the Durango and Silverton Railroad Depot for their 30-minute rides on the famous choo choo. If you missed Thomas’ run last week don’t despair, he’ll be departing every 45 minutes starting at 10:30 a.m. this Friday through Sunday.
