GIVE DAD A BUCKET LIST PRESENT HE’LL NEVER FORGET — A RIDE ON THE CUMBRES & TOLTEC SCENIC RAILROAD, AMERICA’S HIGHEST, LONGEST AND MOST AUTHENTIC STEAM RAILROAD
ANTONITO, CO & CHAMA, NM June 5, 2019….Dad doesn’t need another tie, and every study today indicates people don’t want materials things anymore – they want authentic experiences.
So this Father’s Day, give Dad a gift he will never forget: a ride on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. Owned by the states of Colorado and New Mexico, this is the highest and longest steam railroad in America, a National Historic Landmark that moves, chugging 64-miles through the Rocky Mountains. Trains depart from Antonito, CO and Chama, NM daily, from May 25 to Oct. 20, 2019, crossing trestles, steaming through tunnels, and climbing to the top of Cumbres Pass at 10,015-feet above sea level.
It is a constant adventure through some of the most beautiful and rugged scenery in the West, all at a stately 12 miles per hour. The readers of USA Today judged the Cumbres & Toltec to be the most scenic train ride in North America. Passengers can spot wildlife as they travel through forests of aspens that turn a brilliant gold in the fall. All full day rides include a delicious hot lunch of turkey or meat loaf at Osier Station, and the train has a bar and snack car, restrooms and an open-air gondola car where docents share interesting commentary on the history and geology of the region and the wonders of railroading.
There are nine different ticket options. Or gift passes can be purchased that will allow Dad to make his own choice at a later date. Even better, join your dad for an adventure of a lifetime and get a pass for yourself to accompany Dad.
