Royal Gorge Route Railroad
Step aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad to embark upon a breathtaking journey that began 140 years ago. Like a bar-room brawl on wheels, two companies vied for the route and the legal battle dubbed the "Royal Gorge War" began. The victor offered rail service until 1967, but the route laid fallow until a local railroader restored a dozen mid-century rail cars to begin passenger service again in 1999. Royal Gorge Route now ferries 100,000 travelers each year for an unforgettable scenic and culinary adventure within the Royal Gorge.
