My wife and I rode this railroad just a couple weeks ago and wow! I have lived in Colorado Springs for almost 50 years now and I regret not doing this trip greatly. Incredible scenery, great experience and holy cow, what a meal during the trip. (Part of the price of the trip.)

We did one trip last year in September, and enjoyed it so much we planned this year’s trip for October, hoping for peak fall colors. We were not disappointed!! Stunningly beautiful vistas, perfect weather, and an awesome staff made this a perfect outing for our family trip. Due to COVID, there were some minor changes, but everything went smoothly. I think anytime would be wonderful, but the fall trips are simply gorgeous. This adventure is definitely worth taking, book early for the fall

Awesome views and ride thru the mountains! Only 1 week left before the season ends and the aspens are gorgeous right now! We caught the train out of Chama. Called them and the lady on phone told us which ticket to buy for Chama to Osier. The views are just gorgeous!!! Stood in line to pick up our tix that morning. You get an assigned seat and people are spaced apart on the train. They reminded everyone to keep masks on the whole time and are doing temperature checks. Lunch was good and seating is well spaced out. Train docents were friendly and informative. One fella was wiping down the hand rails the whole time. We had a blast!

Great experience. The volunteers are very knowledgeable Nd helpful. The train ride is great and wonderful scenery. The food at the stop is good home cooking. It is worth the time and money.

I have to agree with another viewer, The train ride, history and beautiful scenery are amazing, but it is not COVID-safe, if that is important to you. They make a big deal about taking your temp before you board, but after you are on the train, mask wearing is not enforced and even employees do not comply. Our docent wore his mask the entire time, however, did not enforce it. Those that wore masks would pull them down to talk. They don't get it. When you talk is when you spread the tiny saliva particles! I especially loved the Train Chasers. Each time the train crossed Route 17, you would see the same pickup trucks with grandpas and children waving. We were on the first train ride of the season, 9/21, due to the COVID delay. One man put up a sign in a desolate area that read, "Welcome back C&T, we missed you."
