Kids ride free on the Cumbres

-A A +A

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad Kids Ride Free program is back for a second year. Children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old will ride for free with the purchase of one full price adult ticket on the daily excursion trains. The successful program has also been extended to the Cinder Bear Experience — a half day excursion from Chama to Cumbres Pass.
The train climbs the 10,015-foot-high Cumbres Pass, winds through tunnels and over trestles, and past waterfalls, mountain forests, and alpine meadows.
A ride on the train is an adventure and is now a top summer vacation pick with the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad Kids Ride Free program.
The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is America’s highest and longest narrow gauge railroad.
The railroad is owned jointly by the states of New Mexico and Colorado and crosses back and forth between the two states 11 times.
Daily excursion trains stop at the Osier Dining Hall for a lunch of roast turkey, homemade meatloaf, baked fish and a fresh salad bar. The children’s menu includes hot dogs, macaroni and cheese and chocolate and pumpkin pie peach cobbler desserts made fresh daily.
The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad was designated a National Historic Landmark in October of 2012.
The Kids Ride Free Program is available May 24 through Oct. 19 on daily excursion trips No. 1 through 6, and on Cinder Bear Excursion trains. Limited seats available. May not be combined with any other discount, offer, or promotion.
Not valid on Sunset trains, Galloping Goose, or in Tourist Class Seating. Kid-priced lunch fees apply on daily excursion trains.
