  • Learn how the Doodlebug Line and the historic Chili Line Railroad played important roles during the beginnings of Western expansion.
  • Experience the new RailRunner train, Amtrak, Cumbres-Toltec Narrow-Gauge Railroad, and more as you follow the iron trails of cowboys, miners, merchants and immigrants.
