Ride a working freight train through high desert scenery on this 4-hour round trip from the historic depot in Santa Fe to Lamy, a sleepy little village 18 miles southeast of Santa Fe and reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Wild West days!
Coaches on the Santa Fe Southern Railway are charming vintage cars which have been authentically restored or renovated with a southwestern look.
Seats in rows have "walk-over" backs which allow passengers to face all one way or face each other. Interiors are graced with high ceilings and windows which can open.
Santa Fe Southern Railway's Silver Class cars are vintage ATSF Super Chief cars which afford riders a cozier, more intimate experience.
These carpeted, silver sided coaches with lounge chair seating transform into diners with two to six person table seating for our dinner trains. Whether you're riding on the authentically restored Acoma Lounge Car or the Plaza Lamy Pleasure Dome, you'll experience the comfortable luxury of America's train heyday. Silver Class is subject to availability.
Within the lovely Plaza Lamy Pleasure Dome car (description above) are 16 special seats "up top!" Eight of these seats are walk-over bench seats, and eight of them are swivel seats.
The dome seats are surrounded by a glass dome which affords the rider a 360 degree view. Dome Seating subject to availability.
The 120 year-old spur from Lamy to Santa Fe, the vintage railcars, and the charming California mission-style depot at 410 S. Guadalupe St., combine to make a charming slice of history.
Every year, tens of thousands of visitors come to see, photograph and paint the old Santa Fe Depot and ride the train along the original high-desert route that carried early tourist adventurers, settlers, artists and scientists into the city.
