We took our grand daughters and they had so much fun. It is a slow trip through the beautiful Aspen trees up to a spectacular view of the Rockies. A must do if you are in the area in the fall.

Lots of folks wonder what to do in life. A few geniuses innovate something great. A larger number of folks take a more humble task, and make some fun-quality-value from it (in Leadville, the folks at High Mountain Pies, for example, seem to be doing this). Some hustle luggage that nobody wants, or operate ripoff-rate foreign exchange booths in airports.... More

Our 7-year old daughter picked this to do for her birthday so we purchased the tickets online. Arrived just in time to board due to accident at a highway construction site which delayed us. Sadly the train was overbooked, and despite the train conductors repeated pleas for families to shift down to cover any empty seats, our fellow passengers would... More

My husband and I were in Leadville, CO last weekend. Unfortunately we didn't have reservations to ride the Colorado & Southern Railroad train, but we did drive to the train station, went inside and saw many people - couples & families with kids - board the train. It is about 2-2.5 hours and goes into the higher mountains to see... More

We went on this train ride in late August, a beautiful time of year in CO. Our train conductor was very knowledgable and my friends with kids (2 families rangin from 8 months to 8 years) had a good time, and the kids loved the conductor. We unknowingly were on the sunday ride which is about 3 hours, instead of... More

The train ride was wonderful, although maybe a bit too long...2 and 1/2 hours. Although great time to go for the Aspens were turning beautiful shades of yellow and some oranges, really pretty.

My wife and I took the train ride in late September and there was a slight snow falling and the mountains were white... it was wonderful and serene. The pricing is fair, and the conductor who served as tour guide was knowledgeable. Don't this is a luxury sightseeing trip, it is not, but it is a way to spend an... More

We were in the area and walked in and got tickets without a reservation. It was peak fall color time and we were tired of driving so thought we'd sit back and let the train do the driving for us! The seats all face the large windows. As the train pulled out of the station I realized that I was... More

This was a fantastic 3hr trip. We were pleased that there were enclosed cars, covered cars, AND open air cars. You didn't have any particular assigned seat, and were free to move about the train as you pleased. When we boarded it was raining, so everyone was inside, and as we set out it cleared up and we were able... More
