We saw so many different parts of Colorado that we'd never seen before. Cons: Send an update when the train is late. The train was almost 2 hours delayed - it would have been nice to get an alert that it was running behind. Tips: The food is limited and not the best quality on the train - we brought our own breakfast / lunch and so glad that we did. It was better than any option they provided to us.More
