Take this “classic” train tour on an exploration of the Colorado Rockies, riding standard and narrow gauge railways to summits of over 14,000 feet. Teddy Roosevelt described a Colorado train ride as “the trip that bankrupts the English language”! Even those with no interest in railways will love the remarkable vistas from Colorado’s trains. Non-rail sightseeing includes traveling through the mountains between Ouray and Telluride, ancient Anasazi Indian cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park, ghost towns, and sublime scenery from vast deserts in the Great Sand Dunes National Park to the alpine peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park. Please join Rail Travel Adventures tour manager Denny Thompson on this wonderful tour. All aboard!

This tour also will be offered in September 2015. All names remaining on the 2014 waitlist will be offered the first chance to book the 2015 tour before it opens to general public sales.

We are now highlighting a new WINTER RAILS TOUR to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks from February 16-March 1, 2015. Included are rides on the steam-powered Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge RR, the New Mexico Rail Runner Express, and the Utah Front Runner regional rail services.  Also included are visits to Santa Fe NM and Salt Lake City, with travel on Amtrak's SOUTHWEST CHIEF and the CALIFORNIA ZEPHYR across the Rockies. The experience of exploring Yellowstone National Park by Snowcoach in the depths of winter is truly amazing.
