Durango & Silverton #482 on the Highline

Durango & Silverton narrow gauge Mikado # 482 (2-8-2) pulls her train along the highline north of Rockwood, CO on May 26, 2000. The railbed was blasted out of the rock cliffs in 1880. The Animas River is located 400 ft below the ledge and it is often said that one more coat of paint on the engines or cars would cause them to scrape the rock walls along the 45 mile run from Durango to Silverton in Colorado.
