Delightfully Antiquated

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is a full-day, all-inclusive adventure into beauty and bounty. Spend a day in the spectacular, unspoiled West along the Colorado and New Mexico borders. Enjoy a free beverage and an all-you-can-eat buffet lunch with dessert.

USA Today readers voted Cumbres & Toltec the Best Scenic Train Ride in America. Climb aboard this National Historic Landmark for a 64-mile day trip you'll never forget.

Our coal-fired steam engine carries you through steep mountain canyons, high desert, and lush meadows as you zig zag between the Colorado and New Mexico border. Open your eyes to spectacular and rare Western scenery which can only be viewed from this train's unique route.

Ride in the Victorian elegance of our deluxe parlor car or choose the budget-friendly coach car.

Trains depart daily from Chama, NM and Antonito, CO, from late May's blooming wildflowers through the golden leaves of October. A luxury motor coach chauffeurs you back to your starting point at the end of the ride.

Life is short. Ride long.
