Loved the train ride. Worth the price! Rode in the open air cars and enjoyed the mountain views. Conductor and staff were very friendly and personable.

“Nice, relaxing ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We decided to take the 2.5 hour train ride while visiting Leadville and were glad that we did. It had just started up for the season on Memorial Day weekend so it had just got rolling for the season. There was informative dialog along the way and great views. We didn't get a chance to eat our lunch before boarding but they allowed us to bring on our lunch which we ate along the way. There were hot dogs and other snacks available for purchase on the train.

This 2 1/2 hour train trip was very interesting, but a little pricey. The "conductor" gave a good description and history of the train and the. Trip.

“Do the railroad trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

An awesome trip for a ride on a railroad. The price of the ride, the people who work there, the train and cars are all wonderful. We made a great family day out of it and you cannot have more fun or see more beautiful country for the price. If you get to Leadville, Colorado make plans to ride the train, you will not be disappointed.

“Train Ride”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nice scenery. A little expensive for our family. I like the variety of viewing areas offered. It's nice that you can go into an enclosed car if you get chilly.
