Description

Built originally as a mining line, the scenic value of the Durango & Silverton was quickly recognized in passenger service. After surviving natural disasters, wars, and financial instability, a determined staff (and starring roles in several Hollywood movies) promoted the tourism that ensures the line's survival to this day. Now recognized as a National Historic Landmark and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, the Durango & Silverton continues to provide year-round tourist service.Due to USPS size restrictions, we are not able to ship this set via USPS Priority Mail International.

Durango & Silverton passenger set comes complete with:
- 2-8-0 locomotive and tender with operating headlight
- open excursion car
- old-time combine
- old-time coach
- 47" x 38" oval of E-Z Track, including 12 pieces curved track, 1 piece straight track, and 1 plug-in terminal rerailer

    Durango HO Set

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 28th 2018

    This is the second time I purchased this set for my 5 year old. I have the set elevated up very high. The train was dropped on the floor several times and quit working so we ordered a new set since I could not find just the locomotive/coal car for a reasonable price. The set came as advertise and worked perfectly. The first set operated for 6 months until being dropped; I expect this set to do as well.

    Great toy for my young kids under the tree

    Posted by Robert on Jun 28th 2018

    I researched for a long time to find an "under the tree" set that I could also build upon and create a simple layout for my kids and I to work on. I'm pretty picky when it comes to spending money so I wanted to make sure I did my research. This set, for what it is, is very nice. Is it a finely detailed all metal loco with heavy duty all metal truck rail cars? Nope. I would expect the price to be much higher for that. But it is nicely detailed for a beginner and for kids. The speed controller works smoother than I expected and everything stayed on the EZ track, even on carpet with a toddler kicking it! (It did take some adjusting) My only complaint is the link mechanism for the loco and the tender is a bit awkward, and the stiff wires connecting the two impeded smooth operating until I adjusted everything Im very pleased with this item and would recommend it for anyone interested in a decently detailed steam loco, looking to get into the hobby.
