Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad



500 S. Terrace Ave. , Chama, NM 87520 575-756-2151

AMERICA'S HIGHEST & LONGEST COAL FIRED, STEAM OPERATED, NARROW-GAUGE RAILROAD. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is hidden away in a little-known corner of the southern Rocky Mountains, and is a precious historic artifact of the American West, a living, breathing history museum on wheels. Built in 1880 as part of the Rio Grande's San Juan Extension, which served the silver mining district of the San Juan mountains in southwestern Colorado, and essentially unchanged since, the C&TSRR is the most outstanding and best known example of steam-era mountain railroading in North America. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is known around the world for its spectacular scenery, unique machinery, and historic structures. The railroad offers a variety of excursions, includimg wine tasting, moonlight, geologist, 4th of July, Labor Day, and the kids' special, adventure-filled Cinder Bear Express.
