Fodor's Review

For a leisurely tour across the Santa Fe plateau and into the vast Galisteo Basin, where panoramic views extend for up to 120 miles, take a nostalgic ride on the antique cars of the Santa Fe Southern Railway. The train once served as a spur of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway. Today the train takes visitors on 36-mile round-trip scenic trips to Lamy, a sleepy village with the region's only Amtrak service, offering picnics under the cottonwoods (bring your own or buy one from the caterer that meets the train) at the quaint rail station; some dinner rides are also offered. Trains depart from the Santa Fe Depot, rebuilt in 1909 after the original was destroyed in a fire. Note that because of financial challenges, no rides were offered in 2013, but as of this writing, the operators had announced that service will resume in spring 2014—it's best to call ahead.
