All-Aboard the Steam Locomotive for a Colorful Tour Through Cripple Creek

Come take a spectacular 45-minute trip of beautiful colors and fascinating experiences! Since 1967, the Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad has been carrying passengers. This unique four-mile round-trip includes an interesting and educational narration on the rich history only a dynamic gold town could produce. Also stops for special points of interest, impressive photo spots, and Echo valley.

A trip on the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad reveals scenic wonders around every curve as century-old steam locomotive transports you back to the gold mining days of Cripple Creek & Victor, Colorado. You will enjoy every minute of the ride and will have a better knowledge of the world-famous town of Cripple Creek, Colorado.

The locomotive is a 15-ton iron horse of the 0-4-0 type typical of the early day steam engines so important to the winning of the west. The track goes south out of Cripple Creek, past the old Midland Terminal Wye over a reconstructed trestle, past many historic mines and terminates near the deserted mining camp of Anaconda, then returns back to Cripple Creek.

We encourage you to board the train for an amazing tour of Cripple Creek on Admission is $15 for adults, $14 for seniors ages 65 and up, and $10 for children ages 3-12. We do offer a dollar discount for AAA and active military with a valid ID.

Handicap and wheelchair accommodations are provided with assistance from our staff, please call for specific arrangements. It's truly a treat for railroad and history buffs, kids and the whole family!
