Day 1 –

>>Welcome Dinner

Take off for the rail adventure you’ve always been waiting for! As you journey across Nebraska, get to know your small group and enjoy the anticipation of the trains to come! Enjoy a welcome dinner with your group before staying the night in Colorado Springs. (D)

 

Day 2 –

>>Rio Grande Scenic Railway

Today’s excursion takes us along Colorado’s standard gauge Rio Grande Scenic Railroad from Alamosa to La Veta. This line restores passenger service to the wildly beautiful La Veta Pass, a summit last crossed by regularly schedules passenger trains over 50 years ago. Lunch during your layover in La Veta at the Bakery.  The afternoon is spent relaxing as your train passes back through the rugged terrain.  End the evening with your group in the town of Almosa and catch some shut eye for tomorrow’s day full of trains! (B,L)

Day 3 –

>>Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

This morning, we will board a unique scenic railroad, following the former Denver & Rio Grande Extension for 64 miles.   No paved road crosses the track for over 50 miles of our journey. Have lunch in Osier before making it to Antonito, then back to Alamosa.  Visit Sand Dunes National park for spectacular views of nature at work.  Theses dunes were formed by sand and soil deposits from the Rio Grande River and tributaries.

Day 4 –

>Royal Gorge Railway

**Rafting Adventure

Today we explore the Royal Gorge Canyon’s depths aboard the restored Royal Gorge Route Railroad in the Club Class Car.  A highlight of the journey is the stop at Hanging Bridge on the narrowest point in the chasm. The excursion concludes with a visit to the soaring Suspension Bridge and the inclined railway from the rim to the river’s edge.  You could also venture out instead for a rafting adventure!  Echo Canyon river expeditions are an amazing way to get your adrenaline pumping as you rush down the river in an inflatable raft!  Join the group for dinner in Manitou Springs or visit the Cliff Dwellings before enjoying a local farewell dinner!
