We were looking forward to seeing the Gorge from the bottom on this trip through Canon City. We made arrangements to take the 12:30 train and almost missed it due to a accident on the way into town, but the staff was very helpful, and I even think they held the train a minute or two just to accommodate our situation. The service was just as good once we made it to our seats. The food was enjoyable for both the kids and the adults. We rode in the glass domed car which was well worth the price. The ability to see was awesome and really enjoyed the personal insight we were given by our waiter who was in training named Mitchell. We moved in and out of the train and enjoyed the open air car even though it was a little cold on the day we traveled. All of my kids enjoyed this event, which is sometimes difficult with a 14 year old daughter and 7, and 5 year old boys.
One tip, make sure you ask to be seated on the water side of the train. The train goes through the Gorge and and returns with the same side always looking at the water. The other side of the car struggles to see the impressive views. Enjoy!
