My brother and cousin shot these videos while at a wedding in Durango, Colorado. As you can see, the wedding just happened to take place right next to the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad line, and a total of three trains passed by during the ceremonies. The two featured in this video were powered by locomotives #486 and #482: both 480 series, or K-36, locomotives built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1925.
The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, for those who want to know, operates a 45 mile stretch of 3 foot track from Durango to Silverton, Colorado. It was originally built by the Denver and Rio Grande Railway in 1881 and was used to service silver and gold ore mines in the San Juan Mountains. It's a federally designated National Historic Landmark, and it's recognized by the American Society of Civil Engineers as a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. Also, from what I've heard, it's one hell of a ride.
