Love using the Rail Runner on the weekends to visit family. The plaza is easy to walk to. There's shopping readily available.

We were in Santa Fe and were tired of driving. It was a nice cheap way to get to Albuquerque. It was a scenic view. A food and/or drink option would have added a star.

Myself and two friends are going to Santa Fe in early Dec. Could we catch the train from Santa Fe and take it to Albuquerque to see the countryside and do lunch in Albuquerque and then return. I guess my question is can we buy tickets in Santa Fe for the train.
