Unfortunately, the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad is now closed and looking for new ownership. We’ll keep you updated on its reopening. The info below is from the past about the train ride.
Rio Grande Scenic Railroad operates a number of different routes around Southern Colorado. It runs year round, with summer as the peak. It connects the towns of Alamosa, Fort Garland, and La Veta, CO.
There are specialty trips, like the Summer Concert Series mid-June to late August, featuring live music acts, or the Brewfest featuring tasty craft beer. The annual Photographer’s Train runs in September and features outstanding, autumn photo opportunities.
