This one’s for the kids (of all ages, of course). It’s a ride on the C&TSRR’s historic steam train designed to appeal to the youngest rail fans – or rail fans-to-be. Master of the event is Cinder Bear himself, who will be on hand to greet all passengers and take them
on adventures including storytelling, games, songs and more!The three-hour long funfest is highlighted by the train ride up the mountain to Cumbres Station at the top of the pass.
A picnic lunch designed for kids by the Narrow Gauge Caterers Inc. is served and each passenger gets a special Cinder Bear souvenir. The train ride itself is a unique thrill for the kids – and their accompanying adults. It is tailored both in length and style to attract and keep the attention of the youngsters.
Kids still hear the timeless story of “The Little Engine That Could.” Our steam locomotive’s pull up the Cumbres grade could have been the stretch of track about which that story was written (“I think I can, I think I can…”). It’s the perfect trip for an intergenerational sharing of the universal joy of a jaunt on a steam train.

Experience the excitement of rugged, narrow gauge, coal-fired, steam powered mountain railroading on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. You will traverse 64 miles of unparalleled scenery as you climb from Antonito or Chama to the dining hall at Osier and on to your final terminal. Lunch is included of course. You will sense the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains as your train is handled by sure-footed locomotives and able crews through tunnels, above deep gorges and over Cumbres Pass. This unique section of mountain railroad is owned by the states of New Mexico and Colorado and was designated a National Historic Landmark in October of 2012. It is truly a memorable experience not to be missed.
