ABQ to Santa Fe for Dinner: by Train

The Railrunner Express makes a great ride if you're yearning to go up to trendy Santa Fe for dinner.
I boarded a late afternoon train for the 1 1/2 hour ride to Santa Fe to go to Backroad Pizza (featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives) sample their pizza and a brew from Santa Fe Brewing, then go across the street to 2nd Street Brewing Company for another beer or two.  
By this time I was feeling a buzz which is why I took the train in the first place.  When I was done at 2nd Street Brewing,  I walked the pedestrian / bike trail up to the train station, hopped on the train for the trip back to Albuquerque.  By the time I returned, I was fine to drive back to my hotel. The cost of the train ride includes a free transfer to a bus in Santa Fe.
Backwoods Pizza is good by New Mexico standards and 2nd Street Brewing is good by the hop head standards for craft beer.
