I had a ticket for the 9:20 train to Pike’s Peak. I had to arrive 30 minutes early to pick up my ticket. The depot is only 2 miles from the RV park. The ticket was $35 and parking was $5. Here is a photo of the train depot.
All the tickets are assigned seating by the railroad company. I was lucky to get a window seat facing forward. The seats were 3 seats on one side of an aisle and 2 seats on the other. The uncomfortable part is that the seats are back to back so you are facing people and are knee to knee with them.
The trip is 1 hr and 20 min up then you get 30 minutes at the top and then 1 hr and 20 min back down. It is 30-40 degrees colder at the top and very windy. I was smart and wore jeans and took a heavy coat. Many others were in shorts and flip flops and freezing.
