Work on a multi-year project includes new woodwork, paint, windows
Michael Danielson, manager of building restorations for Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, paints the west side of the train depot Thursday where an air-conditioning unit was removed. The work is part of a multi-year restoration of the building, which includes replacing rotten wood and covering the structure with fresh paint. “The wood that is being replaced is the same species and original millwork staying within the historical character of the building,” Danielson says.
