This was our second rail excursion from Alamosa to LaVeta and the new management has really added so much to the experience & increased the level of service since our first trip 2 summers ago. Our car host, Eve, was simply sensational and added to our enjoyment of the trip immeasurably. Adding a dining car to the consist says volumes about their interest in creating a fabulous train experience for all passengers. Along the way we were treated to a bear sighting between the tunnels on the way to LaVeta! Thanks for the heads up, Eve! The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and there was even a lightning & thunderstorm to add to the memorable day,
To bring a pert near perfect day to a close we were treated to a musical performance by Fred Hargrove who's pretty famous 'round these parts in his own right. Fred is charming, delightful and one heck of a singer & songwriter.
It's easy to understand how this is rated Alamosa's #1 thing to do. Can't wait to come back to a place we felt so welcome.
