Mildly contemplating a trip to Durango in mid-October. We have been in Durango several times during the summer months but never later than August.
Can you tell me if early winter storms occur very often at that time of the year in that area? If we go, we would also llike to make a return trip to Silverton via the narrow gauge railway. This brings up another question. Can you depart on the early train and return to Durango on the last train of the day or do you have to return on the same train on which you rode to Silverton? Would like to spend more time in Silverton than the two hours allotted between arrival and departure of the same train.
Many thanks for any information.
