Hopefully some of the criticism levelled at the railroad will be a bit more muted this year.

The snowy winter came after a dismal economic summer for Silverton business owners whose budgets were rocked by the month-and-a-half of train cancellations caused by the 416 Fire, a wildfire that burned 54,000 acres north of Durango.

Tens of thousands of train reservations were canceled. At least one Silverton business owner reported sales were down 70%. Hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes and many Durango shops, restaurants and adventure services were hurt by less business from fewer tourist.

But things are looking up, Silverton business owners said.
