Our October rail charter to Denver and Durango was a trip of a lifetime!  We left in the middle of October hoping that the fall leaves would show their splendor and we were not disappointed.

We traveled Donner Pass, Soldier Summit, Gore Canyon, Glenwood Canyon, Beyer’s Canyon, Moffatt tunnel and down the front range into Denver.  As our train exited the east portal of Moffatt Tunnel, it was like we were in a snow globe.

On our way south from Denver to Durango, we stopped and visited Mike Danneman’s Moffatt Road N Scale layout and then had lunch on the Royal Gorge train.  What a bonus that was!

Our day on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gage was a cloudless day of about 60 degrees and was a perfect day for an amazing ride through the most beautiful mountains!

The food and service were tops.  Riding in the California Zephyr cars, with the great people that came along to share the experience, was so much fun.  Everyone had positive things to say, with the most common question being – when is the next trip?[/twocol_one_last]

My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.
