Each August the Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage holds a special event called Railfest. I have attended a few past Railfests, including the first. It has been several years since I have been there for this event. And it seemed as if it might be even more years if I did not make it this year. From Grand Canyon (where I am spending the summer) it is just a few hours driving time. So off I went. The weather could have co-operated a bit more, but it was not the near washout as my trip last year to the DS&NG Fall Photo Special.
