There are two operational K27

#463 on the Cumbers and Toltec and #464 on the Huckleberry

There are 3 C-19s running

#41 and #340 at Knotts Berry Farm and #346 at the Colorado RR Museum

And one C-18

#315 normally in Silverton but currently running at the C&TS

Most of these ran at one time on the line from Durango to SIlverton. Today the railroad runs K-36s ,K28s and soon a K-37 locomotive.

The #315 does run from time to time on the Durango and Silverton.

So I'm guessing there is still continuos track between Chama and Durango. I thought I read somewhere that the extra track was taken up.

I don't think there's any track. These days, we move steam engines on low loaders behind trucks.

Track between Chama and Durango is long gone.

Thanks for the reminder on the 2nd K-27. I had thought there was, but my quick internet search missed it, so I dismissed such notions.

Later,

K

Ok, I'm baring my sole so please be gently with me. I've only had Bachmann Spectrum and for the most part really enjoy them and the level of detail, etc. However, they can be a bit delicate. So with the above mentioned Accucraft, I know nothing. I actually thought they only did live steam, but now know they do electric. But I need some educating on them as compared to the plastic Bachmann. Cost, detail, running, durability, etc., etc.

EDIT: Ok after looking around their site, my iPad couldn't figure out how to see prices, so I went to eBay. That answered a lot. Running in the thousands, I'm sure they are nice but not in my league. I saw the words museum quality somewhere and assumed they would be out there.

Mickey.
I don't want to appear simplistic but the only brands you know will perform reliably when they come out of the box, are LGB and PIKO.
It took years of shoddy product before Bachmann finally produced reliable quality made products such as the latest 4-6-0 Big Hauler, the C19 and the 2nd edition Climax.

Bachmann, as Tony said, took a while to figure out how to make a decent locomotive. The C-19 is a fine looker and performer.
Accucraft are metal models made in small batches, and are therefore more expensive. They are durable, but are equally likely to get damaged if you drop them due to the weight.
Neither are "museum quality". Accucraft were originally looked on as 'too detailed for live steam', but time has proven that they are indeed quite robust and nicely detailed.
