You can get tickets now through the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad by clicking here. Tickets range from $32 to $85 per person for riders 12+, children tickets cost between $22 and $75. There are certain nights that are "value" nights make sure you look at their pricing and schedule prior to check out.
