USA Today Names Cumbres & Toltec Top Attraction in CO and NM - Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad
Posted Jun 9, 2017
Voted by their readers, USA Today '10 Best Awards' named The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad the Top Attraction in the states of Colorado AND New Mexico. It's been two years in a row now - in 2016, USA Today's readers named the CTS RR the Nation's Most Scenic Railroad.
How can one attraction earn top billing in two states? Jointly owned by the states of Colorado and New Mexico, the National Historic Landmark train travels between Antonito, Colorado and
Chama, New Mexico daily from May to October.
The Cumbres & Toltec is the highest, longest, and most authentic steam railroad in America, running 64 miles through tunnels, above timberline, through gorges and over trestles. The train crisscrosses the border of Colorado and New Mexico 11 times, snaking its way through some of the most scenic and remote landscapes, past tens of thousands of aspen trees, and climbing from 7,888 feet in Antonito to the top of scenic Cumbres Pass at 10,015 feet.
The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad has appeared in almost two dozen Hollywood films, including "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid," "Indiana Jones," "The Shootout" starring Gregory Peck, "Wyatt Earp" with Kevin Costner, "Missouri Breaks" with Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson, and "Bite the Bullet" with Gene Hackman and James Colburn and most recently "A Million Ways to Die in the West" with Seth McFarland.
The Cumbres & Toltec offers daily rides out of both Antonito and Chama, as well as a number of special departures, including Dinner Trains, a Geology Train and children's rides. For more information, visit their website.
