Awesome, Amazing what a trip it will leave you speechless and in awe. It was one of the best tourist things I have done in my 20 years of living in Colorado. We just did it over Labor Day weekend the trip is about 2-1/2 hours long you leave Leadville and go about 9 miles up towards Mt Massive. Then you return the same way back to the station. So I recommend that you sit on the side facing town on the way up and on the other side on the way back due to the conductor talks and explains everything you see and since most of it is on the ride up sit on the downtown side not the station side. Our conductor Denise was totally the bomb funny and witty but very informative.
