The "Unscheduleds"

(Skip to the departure schedule.)

The Missionary Ridge Local offers you the perfect "bite sized" train ride. At 50 to 55 minutes, this 6-mile round trip packs quite the punch. Scheduled trains run daily during the summer season, daily-except-Mondays through October, Friday-Saturday-Sunday in November, and Saturdays in December until Christmas.

However, there is a way to experience the Missionary Ridge Local on some weekdays when regular trains are not scheduled.. Occasionally a charter train will run the full Missionary Ridge Local trip. Frequently there are numerous empty seats available on the train, and many times our "non-group" passengers sit in a different car altogether. Don't forget about the up-charge cab ride option as well..

When a charter train is scheduled, we'll post it here. If you'd like, you can contact the TVRM office the day before the departure date to confirm that tickets are available.


Adults: $15.00
Children (age 3-12): $9.00
No charge for children under age 3.

Tickets are purchased as walk-up only on the day of the trip. The boarding location is Grand Junction Station (directions, info).


All times are for departures from Grand Junction Station.

When shown, "unscheduled" trips are listed as a courtesy to patrons when extra capacity is available on some "charter trains". Be aware that the train will run unless the charter group reschedules. If this happens, the date/time will be removed. TVRM can not be held responsible if a train does not operate due to conditions beyond its control.
