The RGS Story - Vol. 11 ~ Durango and the Perins Peak Branch ~ by Russ Collman The RGS Story - Vol. 11 ~ Durango and the Perins Peak Branch

"THE DENVER & RIO GRANDE Railway's tracklayers reached Durango, Colorado, on July 27, 1881, after spiking steel south and west from Alamosa over Cumbres Pass. With the arrival of the railroad on the scene, gold and silver ore could be shipped inexpensively out of the San Juan mountain region. The D&RG chose this site for a town because of the availability of coal. Smelters sprang into existence almost overnight in the fledgling town and mass quantities of raw ore no longer needed to be shipped to Denver or Pueblo. . . . "
