Southwest Colorado hotels, railroad record stronger numbers than 2018

DURANGO — Hotels and a tourist railroad in southwest Colorado are reporting stronger numbers this season after the 416 wildfire slowed tourism and spending last summer.

The Durango Herald reported Sunday that ridership on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is so far even with 2017 numbers.

Railroad spokesman Christian Robbins says the attraction aims to match or exceed the 193,000 riders recorded that year.
