The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad will resume service to Silverton on Saturday, with a modified service.

The tracks were severely damaged by recent mudslides in the area.

The 416 Fire left burn scars in the area, so when recent rains came there was nothing to keep the water from rushing down.

Officials say the railroad will bus passengers from the Depot to the Rockwood Station north of Durango until further notice.

Officials say it could take up to six weeks to fix the tracks.
