As if it were the turn of the 20th century, when short-line railroads chugged their way through rural America, the Heber Valley Railroad whisks passengers through scenic landscapes in vintage and restored coaches. The routes trace the original Denver & Rio Grande Western railroad, trundling across the floor of the eponymous valley.

With heated coaches in the winter, guests enjoy an old-timey experience without sacrificing modern comfort.
