“Great way to see Santa Fe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We catch the train to Santa Fe and walk from the station to the Plaza and beyond. On our last trip we took six friends and toured all the chocolate shops in Santa Fe! There are too many places to eat to list here. We always park the men at Marble Brewing where they can watch the women shop the Plaza from the upper patio ("daddy day care").

“Interesting trip to Santa Fe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We took our two grandchildren to Santa Fe and they really enjoyed the train. A little more relaxing for all of us. Good experience once and a while.

“Good transportation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I take this nearly everyday to ABQ from Belen. It is cheaper than driving and usually you can find a place alone. The times they offer are a bit random, and there are the fair share of creeps.

“Fun Adventure to Santa Fe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was a fun easy way to get from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and not worry about gas cost or parking. Found the website somewhat confusing; more clarification/detail would be helpful.

“Good way to move between SF & ABQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The RailRunner is the train that connects Belen (town South of ABQ) to Santa Fe. Developed as a commuter line, the train is popular with families on weekends and in the summer. Great way to expose kids to train travel. Also a great way to show out-of-towners, who may not get off the freeways what the neighborhoods and countryside of the area are like. Compared to East Coast trains, it is very inexpensive.
