The (new) Denver & Rio Grande Railroad

Authored by D. Larry Patterson

Train loving Brothers Don and Bob Shank have created a living railroad museum in the historic Upper Rio Grande River Valley of Colorado with their (new) Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Since 2009, they have offered the public the opportunity to ride the historic rails of the over 120-year-old Creede Branch in their one of a kind open sided Silver Streak rail vehicle. Every year, from May until October, the D&RG runs daily rail excursions from South Fork along the rugged Upper Rio Grande River and its palisades, through scenic mountain meadows, past 1,000-foot cliffs and historic structures up to Wagon Wheel Gap. With special arrangements, they offer an extended ride clear up to the Wason Wye just south of Creede.
