Please note that we seat in parties of 4. In the tradition of railroad fine 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 online or by calling us at: 888.724.5748.

Every effort will be made to accommodate any special dietary or physical needs. For questions about accessibility of the train and its different classes please call the reservations department at 888.724.5748 prior to booking a reservation on our web site.

Call our Group Sales Line at 719.276.4006 to book the entire car for your special group.


These enclosed, glass-domed cars offer the most spectacular views of the Arkansas River, the Royal Gorge, and the underneath side of the Royal Gorge Bridge.  Look up or look out – you’ll have a front row seat to it all.

Break bread with your friends and family as you sink into your comfortable booth-styled seats for a relaxing roll through this meandering canyon.

Knowledgeable and friendly folks will take your breakfast or lunch order from the train’s new bistro-style menu. They’ll also help you pair it up with your favorite drinks from the Royal Gorge Route’s fully stocked bar.

Hint:  Try the Royal Gorge Rogue, the train’s new microbrew.

Of course, the open-air car is just a hop, skip and a jump away.  Don’t forget your camera!
