The Durango Railroad Historical Society is presently in the final stage of restoring the D&RGW 2-8-0 locomotive #315. The engine was built July 17th 1895 for the F&CCRR and purchased by the D&RGRR in 1914 We are expecting to steam it up in June of 2007 at the D&SNGRR. The plan for this summer also includes operation on the C&TSRR, on the D&SNG during Railfest and a Rails Unlimited color tour on the D&SNG in September. Following the restoration of the #315, we have nine D&RGW narrow gauge freight cars to restore.
