What are the perks for paying for the most expensive train cars on the Silverton Durango?
Hi - I assume you mean the Silverton-Duragno narrow gauge?
The website has complete details on each tier of ticket prices: Click on "Ride with us" and then scroll down to classes of service- from Presidential to Standard class - to see what's different about each one.
Just taking a first look, it appears that Presidential Level (Cinco Animas car) offers two types of seating, is roomier due to accommodating fewer people, has a large outdoor viewing platform, and doesn't allow passengers under age 21 (no children) This car is only available during the summer months.
