Visitors can step aboard history, literally, on the narrow-gauge Georgetown Loop Railroad. Leaving from either Georgetown or Silver Plume, cars open to the stunning views along the route are pulled by a steam locomotive.

The train makes the seven-mile round trip in about an hour and a half. Food and drink, gift shops and restrooms are available in Georgetown and Silver Plume.

There are also special evening tours with dinner or wine tasting on the train.

Another option is a tour of the ¾-mile 1870s Lebanon Silver Mine. The mine is accessible only by train, so visitors must take the loop train to do the hour and a half mine tour. The mine tour also includes a visit to the manager’s office, the miners’ change room and the tool shed. The train generally runs from May through October.
