The Georgetown Loop Railroad

Busy, busy, busy!  I literally have had six days of non-stop exploring!  My mom is in town for three weeks, and my husband and I took a trip to a ski resort for a few days.  The craziness started with a scenic railway tour with my brother and mom.  This first day will be broken up into smaller posts.

We headed to Silver Plume, Colorado which was about a 1 hr and 45 min drive. This is one of the two depots that serves the Georgetown Loop Railroad.  The train tour that we took was about 1 hr and 15 min long.  They also have dinner tours and mine tours, but it was too late in the season to do either.

I was hoping for amazing Fall colors, but we were about a week or two late.  It was still amazing scenery though and something fun to do that we’d never done before.

Mid-way they stop at another depot to pick-up more passengers, before they turn around and head back to the beginning.
