Fodor's Review

A ride on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad takes you under the bridge and through one of the most dramatic parts of the canyon. From the Santa Fe depot in Cañon City, the train leaves several times a day for the two-hour ride. The lunch ride is pleasant, and the food is good, although not exactly "gourmet" as advertised. For an extra fee you can ride in the cab with the engineer.
