Train travel earned its romantic reputation the first time a passenger’s loved one said goodbye by running alongside a departing locomotive until it reached its destination. Refuse to be passed by with today's Groupon to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. The train departs daily at 10 a.m. from Chama, New Mexico, and Antonito, Colorado, and today's Groupon covers the trip to and return from Osier, Colorado, from either location. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get one children's coach-class ticket and complimentary lunch (a $40 value). A children's ticket is valid for kids ages 2–12. Children under 2 ride free.
  • For $37, you get one adult's coach-class ticket and complimentary lunch (a $75 value).

Rail riders chug through the scenic Rocky Mountains along the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad⎯the highest altitude and longest route traveled by an American coal-fired steam-operated train. Across 64 miles of track built in 1880, the iron horse chugs along at 15 miles per hour, winding through the Rocky Mountain air and presenting travelers with panoramic vistas. When voyaging from Chama, passengers pass through aspen trees and grassy hills on the way to the 10,015-foot high Cumbres Pass, where they drink in views of the entire Chama Valley and marvel at ant-sized humans transporting food to their queen. If leaving from Antonito, commuters cross over Ferguson's Trestle and a lava mesa before traversing the rim of the 800-foot-deep Toltec Gorge, passing through the mud tunnel, and bending around Phantom Curve.

As the locomotive conquers each stretch of track it awards riders with sights of blossoming wildflowers and attention-grabbing wildlife such as elk, eagles, bears, and deer holding blaring stereos. When the train approaches the rustic town of Osier, riders dig into an all-you-can-eat array of morsels including turkey and mashed potatoes, meat loaf with brown gravy, and vegetarian and kid's selections.

We found this experience to be wonderful! The Groupon people and Cumbres Toltec worked efficiently to provide all we needed to have an entire day with such great people and lunch at a large depot mid way during the excursion! Loved it, may do it again!
