Owner description: A trip on the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad, reveals scenic wonders around every curve as century-old steam locomotive transports you back to the gold mining days of Cripple Creek & Victor, Colorado. A treat for railroad and history buffs, kids and the whole family.The locomotive is a 15 ton iron horse of the 0-4-0 type typical of the early day steam engines so important to the winning of the west. The track goes south out of Cripple Creek, past the old Midland Terminal Wye over a reconstructed trestle, past many historic mines and terminates near the deserted mining camp of Anaconda, then returns back to Cripple Creek.Trains leave every 40 minutes from mid-May thru mid-October from our 1894 depot and gift shop at the head of historic Bennett Avenue in Cripple Creek. See our annual schedule.Take this is spectacular 45-minute trip of beautiful colors and fascinating experiences… the old steam engine with its pillaring smoke, sounds of steam and working steel… all the effects familiar to the hardy miners who rode the Midland Terminal roadbed when Cripple Creek District’s population approached over 50,000.This unique four-mile round- trip includes an interesting and educational narration on the rich history only a dynamic gold town could produce. Also stops for special points of interest, impressive photo spots, and Echo valley.Handicap and Wheelchair Accommodation is provided with assistance from our staff, please call for specific arrangements.You will enjoy every minute of the ride and will have a better knowledge of this world famous town….Cripple Creek, Colorado.

price at $8 with 1 off coupon was not bad but 2 mile trip is only about amusement park length and if on wrong side of train you only see hillside without cranking neck to look behind you.
Seats should be front to back.

engineer had good (but short) spiel, and you can see the same sites from the road to Victor.

For train nuts it is a real good deal but for us just wanting to see area, not fun. But the kids love seeing the engine work
