The Winter Park Express will leave each weekend day at 7 a.m. Passengers will be dropped off at the resort by 9 a.m., then board the same train for their return trip at 4:30 p.m. They’ll be back at Union Station by 6:40 p.m.

“You don’t have to ski either. There are plenty of people, who we found last year, and it might surprise some, who went up to enjoy the day at the resort and never stuck a plank on their foot.

The trip takes about two hours,” said Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari.
