Overview

Climb aboard Colorado's most scenic train for a journey through the spectacular Royal Gorge. Since 1879, these tracks have followed the winding, tumbling Arkansas River deep within the soaring, 1,000-foot granite cliffs of Colorado's grandest canyon.

The Royal Gorge Route Railroad offers daily departures with several classes of services to choose from, including coach, parlor and bar car, glass-topped vista domes, premier lunch and dinner, murder mystery or cab rides.  No matter where you sit, you'll have access to one of our open-air cars to take in the spectacular view.

To experience the best dining by rail in North America aboard the Royal Gorge Route, choose premier lunch or dinner in the dining car or dome car.  Here, you'll enjoy a chef-prepared meal and have access to an extensive wine list, full bar and excellent service.
