My daughter and I went with a group to tour and have lunch in Santa Fe. Nice experience and it was our first train ride. The station was unique and a great way to travel when you don't have transportation!!

Rode this to Santa Fe and the trip was beautiful. Takes a route that cannot be seen from a drive. Dropped off right at Santa Fe with many nice sites and activities.

I don't have a car and sometimes I need to get to Albuquerque! For about $8 from Santa Fe, this ride can't be beat. There's security on the train and the staff walks through pretty often. Brings you to the transit center and bus connections....More

Myself and two friends are going to Santa Fe in early Dec. Could we catch the train from Santa Fe and take it to Albuquerque to see the countryside and do lunch in Albuquerque and then return. I guess my question is can we buy tickets in Santa Fe for the train.
