Description: Photograph of the Denver and Rio Grande Western's engine No. 473, stopped at Durango, Colorado. Two men are standing in front of the train and appear to be inspecting one of the cars. Mountains are visible in the background and there is snow on the ground. This engine is a Mikado type 2-8-2 locomotive, which headed passenger trains on narrow gauge rails between Alamosa and Durango and also on the Durango-Silverton line.
