Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad


2024 Season: May 25th - October 19th (Tuesday-Sunday)

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 operates in the scenic landscapes of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. Renowned for its breathtaking mountain vistas and vintage steam locomotives, the railroad offers an immersive journey back in time to the late 19th century, when railroads played a crucial role in connecting remote regions. At 64-miles in length, it is the longest, the highest and most authentic steam railroad in North America, providing guests with a unique opportunity to experience the Old West while traversing through deep canyons, across high trestles, and alongside rivers. 

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 2024 schedule kicks off on May 25th through October 19th 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, our 4th of July fireworks celebration train, the Geology Train, which will run twice this year, dinner trains which will feature brews from local breweries, BBQ dinner, prime rib, and surf and turf.
