“I’m delighted to have a place where thousands of people will see them,” said Capt. William “Bud” Davis, U.S. Marine Corps (retired), center. Davis was referring to his collection of 5,000 lead and plastic military figurines that now will be housed at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad & Museum. Davis painted all of the toy soldiers and casted most of them himself. He has been at it since 1950. Helping Davis are Ambrosia Sloan of Kirtland, N.M., left, and Aaron Dan of Fruitland, N.M. Sloan and Dan were volunteering as part of the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program.
