These are clips CoasterFan2105 took in August of 2010 around Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM. Featured are New Mexico Rail Runner Express commuter trains, Amtrak’s Southwest Chief, and the Santa Fe Southern excursion train.
In this video around 6:42 mins in you will experience riding on the NM Rail Runner!! If you listen carefully at the 7:40 min when the doors are closing you will hear the roadrunner beeping as the doors close, just a nice little detail they included on the Rail Runner! We personally enjoy ridding the Rail Runner from the Bernalillo depot (which is just a few minutes drive from our home) to Santa Fe where you can get off and walk to some of New Mexico’s best restaurants and eat some true New Mexican food! By the time you are done eating and walk back to the Santa Fe depot your NM Rail Runner is ready to board to take you back to the Bernalillo Depot. The Bernalillo depot is on the north end of Albuquerque, the Rail Runner does continue on to several stops in Albuquerque then Belen, south of Albuquerque.
The water tower you see at the Santa Fe depot is very similar to the NEW water towers Broadway Limited has available for purchase this spring 2015!!!!!
