We absolutely LOVED the Royal Gorge Route Railroad! We purchased the coach class tickets and took the 3:30 pm train. One of the cars you can ride in is outside in the open which absolutely made the trip awesome! The views were amazing! It did sprinkle a little on us, but it was still great! The staff on the train with us was very knowledgable and gave lots of stories and facts to people asking questions. My only complaint is that the food/snacks on the train was very expensive.
