Amtrak running the train, reborn as the Winter Park Express.
Today marked the happy return of the ski train between Denver’s Union Station and the base of Winter Park Resort. The operator now is Amtrak, and the weekend/holiday train is called the Winter Park Express. But the route is the same — and Coloradans are cheering.
With 550 passengers, including Governor John Hickenlooper, the inaugural train was sold out, as many that are to follow.
