The Whistle Blows Saturday, June 13, 2020. Climb aboard for an experience you won’t soon forget at Cumbres & Toltec, America’s most historic scenic railroad. Our railroad has steamed through history and across the Rocky Mountains since 1880, when first tracks were laid across Cumbres Pass. In 2020, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our co-ownership by the states of Colorado and New Mexico. This is your chance to make history with us. To experience going back in time and off of the grid. To experience the sounds, steam and steel, and the grit that made this country great.
A 64-mile day trip, the coal-fired steam engine carries you into the unspoiled West, through steep mountain canyons, high desert, and lush meadows. You’ll zig zag between the Colorado and New Mexico border. Open your eyes to spectacular and rare Western scenery which can only be viewed from the train’s unique route. Ride in the Victorian elegance of our Parlor car or choose the classic Coach car with comfy padded seats and an openable panoramic window to enjoy the views. Feel free to move about, visit the concessions car for snacks and beverages, and take in the sights, sounds, and fresh breezes on the open-air gondola. Your ride also includes a delicious lunch. A luxury motor coach chauffeurs you back to your starting point at the end of the ride. Trains depart from Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado—visit CumbresToltec.com or call 1-888-286-2737 for more information on the 2020 season. Let’s get steamy.
