America's Longest and Highest Steam Operated Train
The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad gives you unparalleled vistas of a slice of New Mexico. Originating in Chama, NM and culminating in Antonito, Colorado, the narrow-gauge railroad offers a six-hour beautiful ride through the ore-rich Rocky Mountains.
Over a few hours, I rode through steep passes, dazzling gorges which showed Lilliputian scenery thousands of feet below. This Scenic Railroad is a proud vestige of the spirit that won the West, and a nod to the fantastic silver mining trade of the 1890s.
You can dine in the train as well. In a few hours, you can straddle two states: how cool is that?
