La Veta Mountaineer

Answer the call of the West on our excursion trains.

Climb aboard for an authentic Colorado experience on the rails that opened the west! You’ll feel the engines working as we climb the steep grades of the Southern Rockies past the summit at Fir, Colorado. See why we’re the longest and highest standard gauge railroad in Colorado! Our wide dome windows allow passengers to view sweeping rugged mountain vistas and a variety of wildlife while enjoying tales of railroad and mining history. You might even spot a bear or two! Come see why USA Today named us a “Top Ten Ride”.

The train departs from the historic Alamosa depot (also a Colorado Welcome Center). Passengers may also elect to depart at Fort Garland, CO as an alternative for those traveling from Interstate-25 to Route 160 in Colorado or as a northern route from New Mexico. The train travels over the majestic La Veta Pass to the mountain town of La Veta to explore the quaint downtown before the return trip.
