Rail Runner plans to expand train services this weekend to accommodate riders to Zozobra and the New Mexico Wine Festival.

On Friday, passengers traveling to Santa Fe for Zozobra can take advantage of a later post-event departure time, as well as the addition of a second late-night southbound train. Combined, the two five-car train sets can seat more than 1,400 passengers.

After Zozobra, catch a free shuttle to the South Capitol Station. The shuttle will be located on Sheridan Street between West Marcy Street and West Palace Avenue. The first train will depart at 11:05 p.m. and the second train will depart at 11:25 p.m. The Rail Runner will wait for the last bus to arrive with passengers before departing.
