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 and dinner rides are pleasant, and the food is good, although not exactly "gourmet" as advertised, and a murder mystery ride adds additional entertainment from the end of May through October. For an extra fee you can ride in the cab with the engineer.
