When it's not too full and you can sit where you want, this is a delightful, relaxing experience. The cars have tables and allow food, but not putting your feet on the upholstery or taking photos out the windows (in many places). There is usually a "quiet car" available for people trying to read or work but, otherwise fuller trains... 更多
I recommend a daytime trip since the views are so wonderful, esp. between Santa Fe and Abq. You have a choice of quiet car or more noisy co-travelers. It's easy to roll a bike on board so you have a way to get around after you leave the train. There is Wifi but it never seems to work very well.
We took our family and grandchildren on the train to Santa Fe. They loved the tables in the cars with great views of the pueblos and desert. The free shuttle that took us around Santa Fe brought us back to the Rail Runner on time and back home.
Fun, fast, cheap. Nice way to travel. Had lunch in Santa Fe, then came back to Albuquerque. Nice scenery, ride the lower deck and the upper deck to see different views.
A very easy way to get from ABQ to Santa Fe. The staff were very helpful and the price to travel is very cheap. It would be good if the trains had better luggage facilities and more information about how to store luggage. Also the Santa Fe depot is very dark at night when you arrive and the signage is... 更多
Ride the New Mexico Rail Runner from Isleta to Santa Fe. You can see more of New Mexico in a more relaxing manner. Kids will get excited riding on the rails.
We love Rail Runner. No, it isn't the fastest north-south way to get around NM, but it is a relaxing way to see the scenery and avoid the highway hassle. Very clean, probably over-patrolled (they have a thing about security that this NY resident finds a bit amusing-constant announcements that would put an airport terminal to shame) and comfortable. One... 更多
As a native New Mexican, i have traveled from Albuquerque to Santa Fe many, many times. This was incredibly enjoyable and felt like a whole new journey! My kids love it too.
I've been riding the NM Rail Runner for years for both business and pleasure. The train is always very clean and usually on time. The daily tickets are very affordable (as are the annual passes for commuters). There are numerous convenient stations along the entire route with ample parking at most of the stations. It is fun to sometimes just... 更多
