Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad


CLOSED FOR THE SEASON - Check website for 2023 Schedule

All Aboard the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad for a Train Ride of a Lifetime!

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is a National Historic Landmark that moves.  At 64-miles in length, it is the longest, the highest and most authentic steam railroad in North America, traveling through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Rocky Mountain West. 

Owned by the states of Colorado and New Mexico, the train crosses state borders 11 times, zig-zagging along canyon walls, burrowing through two tunnels, and steaming over trestles.

The Cumbres & Toltec 2022 schedule kicks off on July 1st through October 23rd and features a mix of offerings, including:

  • Full Excursion Trips travel by train the full line between Chama, NM and Antonito, CO and includes a 40-minute bus ride and lunch.

  • Half Limited Trips travel half the C&TS line from either Chama, NM or Antonito, CO to the mid-way point of Osier Station and back. Lunch included.

  • Short Express Options are perfect for families, people short on time, and people who want to “chase the train” as well as ride it.

  • Special Trips are trips that do not run weekly, including the monthly 168 Brunch Special, the 168 Dinner Special, the Geology Train, which will run twice this year and the annual Wildflower (Botany) Train.

Originally built in 1880, the railroad offers an authentic 19th Century steam railroad experience. Find adventure on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad with a journey you'll never forget!
