*For same day booking please call the reservations department at 888.724.5748*

Please note that we seat in parties of 4. In the tradition of railroad dining, parties of 2 will most likely be seated across from another couple. Most of our guests enjoy meeting fellow rail fans. When seated with another couple, you and your guest will be seated on the same side. Larger groups will be seated in adjacent rows. Seating is limited and trains sell out quickly, so make your reservations early!

Every effort will be made to accommodate any special dietary or physical needs. For questions about accessibility of the train, its different classes, or if you would like to be seated with another party, please call the reservations department at 888.724.5748 prior to booking a reservation on our web site.

Once you’re settled in on our beautifully renovated club cars, you’ll be presented hearty mini entrées — made by our very own Chef Jeff Gaylor, paired with our signature Colorado beer flight. Like almost everything else we serve on the train, the beers and the appetizers are local — can we get three cheers for Colorado?!
The ticket price of $79 for Ales on Rails is all inclusive. If you’re a wine lover, you can upgrade to a wine flight for an additional $20. Our bistro style menu and our full bar will also be available throughout the ride!  *Special discounts do not apply.
