Rocky Mountaineer plans to launch a new two-day scenic passenger-rail service between Denver and Moab, Utah, in summer 2021. 

Rocky Mountaineer will launch the route with a preview season of 40 departures across 10 weeks from Aug. 15 to Oct. 23, 2021. 

The service includes an overnight stay in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

This new Rockies to Red Rocks route will be in addition to the three rail routes that run in western Canada, between Vancouver, British Columbia, and the Canadian Rockies towns of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.  

"The work to find a new route has been underway for several years as we needed to find a special location with many of the same features we have in western Canada — incredible scenery, iconic destinations and the option for an all daytime, multiday journey that is best experienced by train, President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Sammut said in a press release.
