Guests on this Colorado and New Mexico rail tour will help the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad celebrate its 50th anniversary of operations with a meal aboard a narrow gauge dining car pulled by double-heading locomotives Nos. 168 and 315; a private nighttime photo shoot in Chama, N.M. — home of the Cumbres & Toltec; and a train chase of two wood-burning narrow gauge locomotives up to Cumbres Pass.

Other adventure highlights include a visit to the Colorado Railroad Museum and excursions on the Georgetown Loop Railroad; Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad; behind a locomotive honoring the former Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad in Como, Colo.; on the newly refurbished and re-opened Broadmoor, Manitou & Pikes Peak Cog Railway; over the Royal Gorge Route; and over the famed Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Guests will also return to starting point, Denver, by way of private dome car pulled by the California Zephyr.
