Itís been a big month for Rich Millard, chief conductor for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.

On Thursday, he was interviewed via Web link by 9News in Denver. And earlier this month he was honored at the Discover Colorado Rally at the state Capitol.

Millard says one of his favorite parts of the job is that you are seeing the scenery through the eyes of the passengers, and you see things you havenít seen before.

When asked about the Skype technology that was used to enable the remote interview in Durango, Millard said, ďI think itís the amazing part of the age we live in. You can be in the most remote location that you could possibly think of and still be connected to the world.Ē
