Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad reopens

DURANGO, CO (KRQE) - The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is set to start-up service Thursday.

The Durango Herald reports this comes after La Plata County Commissioners voted to downgrade their fire restrictions to Stage 2 because of rain. 

That allows the use of coal-fired engines.

The owner says there will be safeguards if conditions are exceptionally dry.

Although the fire is under investigation, witnesses have said a cinder from the train may have sparked it.
