I have visited the Royal Gorge before, but did not have a chance to ride the train. I did not know what I was missing. This time did get to travel on the train! The train starts from Canon City and travels on a 12 mile journey through the Royal Gorge. The scenery is amazing with the train hugging the wall of the canyon with the river running alongside. At one point, because of the cramped location, the railway is actually suspended from a hanging bridge on the side of the canyon. We saw many people white water rafting on our trip. On reaching our destination, the train then returns to Canon City, a total journey time of about 2 hours. There are various types of coach in which one can travel. We chose an open car. Refreshments are available on the train. I cannot recommend this trip enough. Fantastic.
