Please note that our tables seat parties of 4. In the tradition of railroad fine dining, parties of 2 will most likely be seated across the table 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 of the table. Larger groups will be seated at adjacent tables.

Seating is limited and our 1st Class Lunch  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.
