Remarks & Notes 
Cement Wall southbound. From up on the rocks above track level, we see our Silverton Mixed charging southbound around the curve at MP 476.5 at the location known as "Cement Wall." This bend in the Animas River has been particularly prone to washouts over the years and in 1970, just prior to the sale of the Silverton Branch, the D&RGW chose to shore up this location by constructing a very stout concrete wall. Clearly, that little piece of engineering has held up well in the ensuing 45 years.

Taking a look at the same train and scene as captured by different photographers. The best way to view will be to sort by photo date so the photos are grouped together.
