  • Awesome time. Ken was our engineer. Did a great job. Good stories along the way. Little kids had a great time. There was a little smoke from the engine. But not terrible and it was only at the very beginning of our ride. Would do it again
  • Great ride and the engineer Ken I believe was the best. Very knowledgeable and probably the best way to learn a little history about Cripple Creek! A must-do for anyone visiting this amazing small town! It was almost the capital of Colorado! Look it up
