Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad Opening Day Celebrations

Antonito, CO & Chama, NM
Antonito, CO - Saturday, May 29th • 9:00am
Chama, NM - Saturday, June 5th • 8:30am

Join us as we kick off our 2021 train season with opening day festivities and ceremonies at both the Antonito and Chama depots. With bells clanging, whistles blowing, and surrounded by clouds of steam, we will begin our season in spectacular fashion.

Join us for free refreshments, ceremonial festivities with the traditional blessing of the train, music, statements and introductions of state and local dignitaries before passengers embark on a ride of a lifetime.

Our railroad has steamed through history and across the Rocky Mountains since 1880, when the tracks were first laid across Cumbres Pass. In 2020, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our co-ownership by the states of Colorado and New Mexico. This is your chance to make history with us and experience the sounds, steam, steel, and the grit that made this country great.

Climb aboard the Cumbres & Toltec and travel through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the nation. Experience the wildflowers, 600-foot deep gorges, wildlife, vistas of snowcapped peaks and all the romance of the steam whistle echoing across the hills. Celebrate the history, and the moment. Join us when we say, "Long may the whistle blow."
