Took it over the summer and it was amazing. I spent about 90% of the time in the vestibule enjoying the open air and train sounds.
One neat feature that isn't advertised is that when the D&RGW management was trying to kill it, the employees banded together to promote the service. Amos Cordoba apparently led that effort; I joined him for his meeting with Silverton business leaders in late September 2001 and I could see that they had a lot of respect for him. Of course, he went to the meeting by train.
