D&SNG offers tribute to fallen hot shots

Law-enforcement officials and firefighters salute as the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad's morning train to Silverton pauses under a giant American flag. Railroad owner Al Harper said some had tears in their eyes as the train blew its whistle 19 times to honor the Arizona firefighters who were killed last month fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire.
Durango Police Officers and members of the Durango Fire & Rescue Authority unfurl a giant American flag to be hoisted above the tracks of the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for a tribute to the 19 Arizona hot shots killed last month. The railroad donated $19 for each ticket sold on the morning train to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, which will distribute the money to the families of the fallen firefighters.
