Durango & Silverton train – Silverton, Colorado

Every once in awhile I get lucky. In this particular case, I was approached many years ago about the use of one of my images for the face of a CD and the interior of the related CD album – entitled “You’re Welcome” – for the music group, Poor Blue. I had posted the image on one of my old blogs, the graphic designer working for the group stumbled across it, contacted me about possibly using it for the band, and the rest is history.

The image they chose was one that I had originally shot in color, but I didn’t care for how it looked – so I converted it to black and white, and was pleased with the results. You can see the rest of the related images below.

This particular locomotive – the Durango & Silverton Railroad #478 (2-8-2) – was removed from active service in late 2016. It is currently on static display in Durango, Colorado, and is awaiting an overhaul sometime in the future.

    1. Thanks! We used to own property about 10 miles northeast of Silverton, and going on the train was a frequent request of friends and family.

      The Durango & Silverton Railroad has a number of other locomotives in service; that specific one is just out of service for now.
