Our First-Class cars take you back to early 20th Century luxury.

The Cars

 Yankee GirlBuilt in 1880 and having undergone several rebuilds over the next 134 years, in 2014 this car debuts as the "Yankee Girl"! It has undergone a complete remodel focused on maintaining the old-fashioned flair of the 1880s while providing the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century.

Built in 1881, the renowned Alamosa Parlor Car features table and chair lounge-style seating.  An exclusive outdoor viewing platform is available to this car’s 24 passengers. For ages 21 and over.

The Silver Vista offers unparalleled overhead views of the soaring canyon walls. Passengers will enjoy oversized seats that offer the most legroom of any car on the line. A private outdoor viewing platform is also exclusive to this class.  Please note, this is an open-air car, so please dress for unpredictable mountain weather.   Sunglasses are highly recommended to protect eyes from possible cinders in the air.  Safety glasses are available for purchase in the gift shop and onboard the train. For ages 12 and over.

The car is staffed with an attendant to assist with all your needs and questions. Passengers receive a souvenir mug and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages for the duration of the trip.

Knight Sky

Knight Sky

The newest Flagship car in our fleet, the family-friendly Knight Sky was built in Durango and put into service in May 2012. Styled after the popular glass-domed Silver Vista, additional extravagances include leather-trimmed first-class seats and a closed vestibule which boasts the largest viewing platform on the railroad! Of course the main selling point is the endless overhead panorama of the San Juan Mountains viewed through the UV-protected glass-paneled roof.
In late September, we add operating windows and heat to add to your comfort during the fall and winter seasons. The windows will be removed during summer months to enjoy the open-air experience of this car.
