Enjoy an Antonito, Colorado bed and breakfast while you take some time to explore this quaint city that is located on the Colorado-New Mexico border. Antonito is located in the South Central region of Colorado at an elevation of 7888 feet and a population of 873. The sound of the train whistle pretty much defines the southern Colorado town of Antonito. The Cumbres & Toltec Railroad is the big draw for visitors, who otherwise might never think to stop. The train, which leaves daily from the old station in Antonito, traverses the Cumbres Pass and ends up 64 miles away in Chama, N.M., where riders can catch a bus back to the starting point. It claims to be the longest and highest narrow gauge train still running, but be warned: this is no luxury excursion with plush seats and fancy dining car. Be prepared to experience the train as Western travelers did more than a century ago. There’s a stop for lunch in Osier, but the main attraction is the scenery, which can easily be photographed from the train as it winds its way through high mountain meadows over the 10,000-foot pass.
