Dear Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad,

The 2018 416 Fire traumatically impacted Durango, Silverton, our visitors, and our neighbors. We, a diverse group of concerned local citizens from across the political spectrum, have come together to advocate for a long-term economically viable and sustainable path forward for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad that acknowledges the train’s history in Southwest Colorado and importance to our community. We would like to work with you to find forward-thinking ways to keep our families, homes, and forests safe from fire; improve our air and water quality; provide for a healthy citizenry; and support a strong and resilient economy for our region now and into the future. In addition to shifts in management practices, we also advocate for a strategic transition away from coal.

We would like to see a successful and thriving train and a healthy and safe natural environment. We believe that this is possible through a mix of responsible management practices, increased coordination between private-public entities, and adopting cleaner technologies to fuel the train.

Our Lands. Our Lungs. Our Livelihoods.
