    This was a nice little day trip, took it on a Sunday with my lady from apx 11-2:30. We enjoyed Walking the different carts and had a nice brunch with fantastic views. Then a cozy little stop in Lamy for 20mins or so to take some scenic pics or visit the Lamy museum for $2, it was a cool old school bar and showroom from the wild west days. You can bring credit card or cash for the bar and they offer free bottles of water.

    Santa Fe Railway, this little excursion was more than disappointing. The website was not informative as to the route or what would be seen along it's path or at the turnabout. The round-trip was a four and one half hours to Lamy and back. We began our journey in Santa fe; we had not been informed that the restaurant in Lamy would be closed until we had our tickets and were on our way. The railway had informed us that they were going to get sandwiches. These were bought at World Foods and brought to Lamy and sold to the passengers at a nominal cost...Read More

    I thought it was a great way to start off a trip to Santa Fe. You get to see a lot of great scenery while not having to watch the road. However the windows on the silver class were foggy and did not seem to be well kept. We did like the silver class for not having a ton a kids and families. I found it very relaxing. The conductor and staff were great and showed great pride and enthusiasm in their work and history.

    I actually haven't been here in 7 years, but it was a snowy April in 2005 and took the ride and did have some little issue where we stopped abruptly and didn't get going again for another 25 minutes. But overall it was a very nice ride. I believe I rode on the silver class. It truly was a memorable experience.

Santa Fe Railway, this little excursion was more than disappointing. The website was not informative as to the route or what would be seen along it's path or at the turnabout. The round-trip was a four and one half hours to Lamy and back. We began our journey in Santa fe; we had not been informed that the restaurant in Lamy would be closed until we had our tickets and were on our way. The railway had informed us that they were going to get sandwiches. These were bought at World Foods and brought to Lamy and sold to the passengers at a nominal cost of $7 along with a can soda for $2, which by the way were sub par. The L amy stop lasted for what seemed much longer than one hour as there was only a closed restaurant in that one horse and four house town; that was all I noticed from the depot. The cost for two and this includes the parking and one sandwich and two drinks was overpriced at circa $100. My recommendation would be take the commuter to Albuquerque. You would get more out of it unless your idea of fun is to sit and buy drinks from the bar.
