Very nice ride, not expensive, clean and fun. You see a lot of the reservations which you do not see when on the highway. Take the time to enjoy!

Rail Runner is a relatively fast and cheap way how to visit the capital of New Mexico - Santa Fe. Rountrip ticket costs 10$ (9$ if bought online). Trains are clean, safe - security is going through all coaches several times during the journey.

We took the Rail Runner up to Santa Fe from Bernalillo for the day. It was great. It was a Saturday, and the Santa Fe Farmers Market was in progress as a bonus. The train is comfortable and smooth. a very nice experience.

Nice lunch trip to Tomasatis restaurant in Santa Fe. We decided to catch the 10:20 pickup at Berinallo and have lunch and ride the 1:02 pickup back. What a nice, relaxing trip! I would recommend this rail service.
