We took a trip on Nov 4. I booked over the phone on the same day for the 2:00 PM ride while still at Denver hotel. We arrived just before noon and asked for switching to an earlier ride at 12:45 and was told, politely, that we had to pay an extra $4 pp to make the change. And the ride wasn't full. I don't think it would affect their business one way or another.
For $26 pp, we only got "coach" class. We had to sit sideways and looking towards front or back was not pleasant to the neck. Worst part is, there was not much to see! I am pretty sure between driving around the town and on I-70, you will not miss much. Because on the train, we interwound with I-70 many times.
To be fair, if you are into the history of mining and want to "experience" what the condition was like hundred years ago, this trip may offer some unique perspective. If you are looking for tourist attraction, spend your time and money elsewhere.
