Sky Railway takes people on vacation adventures
SANTA FE, NM (KRQE) – It’s an adventure on the rails. A new entertainment experience is brewing to hit the track at Santa Fe. Sky Railway promises to be much more than a trip from point A to point B, offering theatrical performances or a showcase of local cuisine and signature cocktails.
Santa Fe businessman Bill Bankowsky is one of the prominent Santa Feans who came together and turned the old Santa Fe South Railroad into an attraction aimed at captivating children and adults alike. .
“We have Christmas coming up, so maybe I want a Christmas look so we can make it look like something has landed on the roof and is sinking on the roof of the car,” said Steve Wilson, manager. entertainment.
Sky Railway will feature a number of themed adventures along its 18 mile track between Santa Fe and Lamy to the south where the holiday season experience kicks off with a journey through Santa’s Wonderland at the station by Lamy.
Heading the creative team is George RR Martin, Santa Fe art enthusiast and Game of Thrones author. The elaborate exteriors of the train cars showcase six months of work by local muralist Joerael Numina. He says he drew inspiration from a long history of using train cars as a canvas. “So when you paint on trains, they’re going to move, so you want rhythm, fluidity, and structure,” Numina said.
Sky Railway is launching its first adventure rides on December 3. For more information, visit skyrailway.com.
