The Blues Train is an exciting 3.5-hour moving experience of live blues on board the coal-fired, steam-powered train through the breathtaking canyons of the San Juan National Forest. The Blues Train features six live blues performances inside the train coaches with a festive musical atmosphere. Each artist performs in their own vintage coach, while passengers are free to dance their way from coach to coach. The Blues Train follows the same format as years past, with nine historic passenger cars, a steam-engine locomotive, two full bands, four solo/duo acts and three craft beer, cider and wine bars. To cap it off, passengers will take in spectacular sunset views along the "Highline," a world famous section of the railroad, as the train crawls along craggy cliffs high above the Wild Animas River.
"There's something magical that happens when you combine blues and a steam train but there's so much more to it than just that. It is an unforgettable experience that you will remember for a lifetime," said Steve Gumble, founder of the Durango Blues Train. "Each year, the train grows in popularity and each ride brings a different experience. It's not often that you get to create musical memories on a historic train that only holds 280 people!"
