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.
