There are serving a full lunch at the Osier station again, after having suffered a fire at the station. The lunch was excellent. We had our choice of roast chicken, barbecued pork and green chile cheese enchiladas. I had a little of each. All good.

We took the 64-mile trip in the parlor car out of Antonito, CO. Sat down in a personal window seat with fresh fruit and a pastry. Also given a gift. We were offered unlimited coffee, tea, water, soda, or juices—alcoholic options offered at an extra charge. The scenery was beautiful, with occasional narration from our hostesses (Fem and Lisa were great.) About 2 1/2 hours later stopped for lunch. Served cafeteria style. Beans, potatoes, green salad, quinoa, cornbread, roll, dessert, and an entree choice of bbq pork, chicken, or enchilada casserole. My husband enjoyed the pork. I had the enchilada with green sauce; it was good, but forewarned, the green sauce was very hot. I have a pretty high heat tolerance, and it was HOT. The bus ride back was about an hour. We had a fantastic time and would recommend it to anyone! Well worth the price. We want to come back in the fall when the aspen trees are changing colors.

Bought tickets to go from Chama to Antonita. The train is a historic treasure. The ride from Chama to Ossian is beautiful. We signed up for lunch halfway on the trip. The lunch was excellent and all you wanted. When we left Osiea you get to see the Toltec Gorge which is impressive. I would recommend going from Chama to Oseia and return to Chama. Not a lot to see when you pass Toltec Gorge on way to Antonita.

You may take the train to the far end at Antonito, CO, or ride to the Osier Station and return to Chama. The climb out of Chama is on a very steep grade to an elevation of 10020 feet at Cumbres Pass. The locomotive has to work very hard to make the climb and the exhaust spews gravel-sized coal pieces and fly ash while the trip into Chama does not present this problem. The dining hall at Osier experienced a fire on September 23, 2021, and the railroad offered a box lunch instead of the buffet. The damage was rather limited but I would be surprised if it were completely repaired before the 2022 reopening. This is a high altitude experience so you may experience high winds and if clouds move in front of the sun the temperatures can drop twenty degrees in a matter of minutes.
