Things to consider –

  • Download the app before arriving at the depot.
  • Once on the train, turn on your navigation and then turn on airplane mode to conserve your battery.
  • Bring a portable battery charger to make sure your phone will last the whole trip.

Once you have downloaded the app, there are three tour offerings:

    • Riding the train? The rider tours will provide you with an on-the-go learning experience, letting you know when a point of interest is ahead. Simply download the tour that matches your trip, and it will take care of the rest!
  2. Friends Walking Tours
    • The Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, interpretation and restoration of the plentiful history found on this unique operation. Here you will find the material for your self-guided walking tours of Chama, Antonito, Cumbres, Osier and Sublette. Simply walk up to what catches your interest at these sites and the app will pull up the corresponding information and photographs. Many of the structures you will see were preserved or rebuilt through the efforts of the Friends. If you would like to support their mission, or even volunteer, please click the hyperlink above to visit their website.
  3. Track Across Boarder Byway (TABB) Driving Tours
    • Following the historic D&RGW railroad grade that once linked the towns of Chama, NM and Durango, CO, the Byway passes through settlements, reservation land and various terrain to complete the story of the Durango & Silverton and Cumbres & Toltec railroads. TABB was officially recognized in both Colorado & New Mexico as a historic and scenic byway in 2015. Drive this backcountry byway to step back in time and see the little-changed western landscape and learn about the deep, rich history of this part of the old American west.
