It's a short train trip to be sure, but it is rare you can ride a train that is pulled by a 1923 Shay Steam Locomotive. I visited in October when the Aspens had turned yellow. Very pretty. The staff were all very friendly. They call it a loop but technically they go one way and then back, it is not a circle per se. but there is a loop at one end of the tracks (Devil's Gate Station) so it is not inaccurate. You can visit a historic mine if you come during the warmer months (it was closed in October) There is a museum at the other station but you better visit it on your own, the time before the train left is not that long. Coach seats are less expensive, but I found the parlor a great place to view from. It had tables and chairs, and came with a free drink and snack. I did not have a chance to find out if the park had other things to do. Outside the park is the historical town of Georgetown, which is a fun place to walk through. There is also a power museum in the town. Note, there are two stations and it does not matter which one you catch the train at, the ride is the same. The only difference is which car you ride, if you ride the parlor car, you have to catch the train at Devils Gate.
