Wednesday, March 6, 2013
The Emma Sweeny was the star of the 1950 movie A Ticket to Tomahawk. The Durango Railroad Historical Society acquired the model in August, 2011 from Amador County, California. Restoration is underway to revive the Emma Sweeny to her former Hollywood glory and interpretive signs about the history of the train and Durango's status as the "Hollywood of the Rockies" during the 1950s are on display at the Santa Rita Park in Durango.
