Enjoy the Colorado mountains in an open-air car!
It's time to enjoy a piece of Colorado history surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see!
"Are you ready for an outdoor adventure? We sure are. Load up the family and come enjoy some fresh Colorado mountain air. We have even brought in extra open air cars for your added enjoyment helping you capture the sights and sounds of the Rocky Mountains," said the Georgetown Loop Railroad in an announcement.
The Georgetown Loop Railroad and Mining Park, just 45 minutes from Denver, will officially open for the season on June 5 and will run every day through October 15 in its regular season. So far, it looks like the annual Oktoberfest and Holiday Trains are scheduled to run, as well.
As the season gets rolling, the railroad says it wants guest to come enjoy sunshine, space, and fresh air, hitching up its open-air cars only for trips until health requirements let up (if they do) this summer. In order to follow health guidelines, the railroad is making some changes to ensure its passenger's safety.
"All cars for the start of the season will be open air cars so you may enjoy our clean, beautiful Rocky Mountains to the fullest!, said the railroad in an email. "We are cutting capacity and adding cars to the train for the opening of the season to allow for even more spacing between guests. Enjoy an uncrowded outdoor adventure!"
In addition, the railroad requests guests wear face masks and maintain social distancing on all trips for the time being. It doesn't appear the mine tours are offered as of yet, but that could change at any time.
But no matter the changes, the experience is just as spectacular as it always has been. The train is one of Colorado's most authentic living museums, taking you back to a time when the state's mining and railroad industries fueled the economy and tales of the West.
All aboard! If you are ready to get your ticket to ride, you can visit the Georgetown Loop Railroad website.
