Lamy Freight Run

sfsr train These scenic, historic train rides are available all year round.

Ride a working freight train through high desert scenery on this 4-hour (approx.) round trip from the historic depot in Santa Fe to Lamy, a sleepy little village 18 miles southeast of Santa Fe and reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Wild West days!

The train ride to Lamy is about 1 hour each way with a short layover. We go all the way to Lamy on Saturdays year round, and Fridays beginning in April. During the layover, purchase lunch from our concessionaire. Walk the peaceful grounds under the cottonwoods, relax and enjoy!

We offer a Cash Bar onboard most train rides, with alcoholic beverages, soft drinks and snacks. We accept credit cards and cash on board. When paying with cash, we do appreciate small bills, please.

We also offer the shorter Hotshot Day Train ride on Sundays year round, and Wednesdays beginning in May of each year. Click here for more information --> Hotshot

Coaches on the Santa Fe Southern Railway are charming vintage cars which have been authentically restored or renovated with a southwestern look. Seats in rows have "walk-over" backs which allow passengers to face all one way or face each other. Interiors are graced with high ceilings and windows which can open.

Santa Fe Southern Railway's Silver Class cars are vintage ATSF Super Chief cars which afford riders a cozier, more intimate experience. These carpeted, silver sided coaches with lounge chair seating transform into diners with two to six person table seating for our dinner trains. Whether you're riding on the authentically restored Acoma Lounge Car (not available at this time) or the Plaza Lamy Pleasure Dome, you'll experience the comfortable luxury of America's train heyday. Silver Class is subject to availability, Dome Class not reservable at this time.

Ages 2 and under are free. All times and prices are subject to change. Call for current fares and schedules.

Loved being on the train--brought back memories of childhood when I traveled by train on vacations.

Great ride! The kids had so much fun--especially on the flat car.

Really a delightful way to spend the day. Beautiful scenery and length of trip was perfect.

I really enjoyed the 18 miles of pure fantasy!
