The diesel excursions will depart at 9:00 a.m. after the steam train with standard-class enclosed coach ($70 adults; $40 children) and open-air gondola ($75 adult; $45 child) seating. Depending on capacity, the railroad may also add a 12:15 p.m. diesel excursion. Please visit www.durangotrain.com for more details.
Guests with current reservations are being given the opportunity to rebook their excursions prior to services being opened to the public.
