This is a great attraction. The service was great, but the best part was standing outside on the open air car and enjoying the views. The staff told a lot of great stories about the old wooden water pipeline and the gun fighter forts you can see along the gorge. We saw a couple of rafters, but it was April and had snowed at the beginning of the week so I imagine the water was cold. The train took us under the Royal Gorge Canon Bridge and the staff told us how and why the bridge was built. The drive to Canon City is about an hour from Colorado Springs. We drove down in the morning, enjoyed the train ride and drove back in the afternoon.
