  • The whole family absolutely loved taking the New Mexico Rail Runner Express from Santa Fe to downtown Albuquerque. The ride was 1 1/2 hours, scenery was drop-dead gorgeous, and the fare was just $10 R...  more »

  • This was a nice little day trip, took it on a Sunday with my lady from apx 11-2:30. We enjoyed Walking the different carts and had a nice brunch with fantastic views. Then a cozy little stop in Lamy for 20mins or so to take some scenic pics or visit the Lamy museum for $2, it was a cool old school bar and showroom from the wild west days. You can bring credit card or cash for the bar and they offer free bottles of water.
  • Santa Fe Railway, this little excursion was more than disappointing. The website was not informative as to the route or what would be seen along it's path or at the turnabout. The round-trip was a four and one half hours to Lamy and back. We began our journey in Santa fe; we had not been informed that the restaurant in Lamy would be closed until we had our tickets and were on our way. The railway had informed us that they were going to get sandwiches. These were bought at World Foods and brought to Lamy and sold to the passengers at a nominal cost of $7 along with a can soda for $2, which by the way were sub par. The L amy stop lasted for what seemed much longer than one hour as there was only a closed restaurant in that one horse and four house town; that was all I noticed from the depot. The cost for two and this includes the parking and one sandwich and two drinks was overpriced at circa $100. My recommendation would be take the commuter to Albuquerque. You would get more out of it unless your idea of fun is to sit and buy drinks from the bar.
