Built in 1880 and little changed since, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is the finest and most spectacular example of steam era mountain railroading in North America. Its equipment, structures and vast landscape exist today as if frozen in the first half of the 20th century.

A ride on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is definitely a bucket list item for any fan of railroads, particularly the golden age of steam. They offer three levels of tickets, Coach, Tourist, and Parlor. If everyone in your group is 21 or older,...More

I would highly recommend this train ride! It was a trip we adults were looking forward to, but our two teenage daughters not so much. Turned out they enjoyed it as much or more than us! Loved the fact you can move from car to...More

Drove from Santa Fe to Antonito. Would recommend the parlor car, seats 1-10 are best, bring snacks. Lunch at Chama is ok except for instant mashed spuds, it's a dining hall experience.

The staff and docents were wonderful. The train very clean. It even has bathrooms and a concession on board. The seats are padded, not just wood. Lunch is provided midway and it was very good. Cooked fresh home style food, not just sandwiches. We took...More

My wife and I rode the parlor car west from Antonio to Chama. The experience of a steam locomotive pulling seven cars through the mountains and valleys offering spectacular scenery was amazing. Lunch at Osier was good; I had the meatloaf and my wife the...More

Take advantage of the open car - July was the warmest to do so. Move around to get best views esp. if your seat restricts angle, dining car best option.

If you like steam trains, you have to take this trip. From the high desert, to the high mesa, through the mountains to the station, the scenery is breathtaking. It's one of those experiences that photos and video cannot touch. Surrounded by this beauty, learning...More

The ride from Antonito to Osier was amazing. Lunch was way more than I expected. We had a few people get on the train going back to Osier from Antonito to prevent the boring part of the ride and the long bus ride back. Your...More

Not in Chama. However, in Antonito you could check with the folks at the Narrow Gauge Railroad Inn (Phone: 866-267-9053). They operate a dog rescue business so might be up to boarding a dog as well.
