Product Information

The rugged majesty of the Colorado Rockies sets the backdrop for this historic route running west out of Denver. Between the west bore of the famed Moffat Tunnel and Glenwood Springs lies 130 miles of high mountain parks and deep colorful canyons.

After exiting the 6.2 mile long Moffat Tunnel, the grade lessens allowing trains to sprint through the Colorado high country. Loaded coal trains put on a fantastic show of raw horsepower verses gravity, with remote swing and rear-end helpers. We’ll visit Gore and Little Gore Canyons, Byers Canyon, the spectacular Dotsero Cutoff, Glenwood Canyon and the Crater Loops on the Craig Branch.

This is one of the most scenic railroads in the west! Part of Union Pacific's Denver Area, this line sees mainly coal traffic out of western Colorado and eastern Utah. BNSF operates trains over the Moffat via trackage rights and Amtrak's California Zephyr runs each way daily between Chicago and the west coast.

As trains follow the course of the Colorado River, one awe inspiring vista opens up after another. The Rio Grande called this “The Scenic Line of the World” and you will see why in The
Moffat Road Part 2: Winter Park to Glenwood Springs!
