Visit the Grand Canyon Railroad at the Williams, Arizona Railway Depot
Arriving at the Grand Canyon
The train arrives at the historic 1910 Grand Canyon Depot. It is among the three remaining log depots still in operation in the United States. Buildings like the El Tovar Hotel, Hopi House and Bright Angel Lodge salute arriving guests as they pull into the station and disembark from the train. Set unobtrusively among the landscape, Grand Canyon Village gives no hint of the majesty that lay beyond. Guests have over three hours to explore the most distinctive chasm in the world.
Freedom Tour at the Canyon
Once you arrive at the Grand Canyon you may participate in a narrated motor coach rim tour to the most scenic overlooks of the canyon to enhance your visit. Guests are escorted to vistas like Mojave Point, Pima Point, The Abyss and Hermits Rest. The Freedom Tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours and works around the train schedule to maximize your time at the canyon. A Buffet lunch is available at Maswik Lodge for an additional charge.
Railway Limited Train and Hotel Package
The Canyon Limited Two Night Package is for those who want to take advantage of staying one night at both ends of the train. The night before the train trip relax at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel and enjoy a delicious dinner at the Grand Depot Cafe. The next morning a great breakfast is ready at the restaurant then off to the canyon in a one-of-a-kind train ride. Experience a guide-narrated motor coach tour of the South Rim. Relax during your overnight stay inside the Grand Canyon National Park at Maswik Lodge. In the morning, explore the canyon before the return train ride to Williams, Arizona.
Coach Class to the Grand Canyon South Rim
Step aboard Grand Canyon Railway for a trip to the Majestic Grand Canyon you’ll never forget. Travel in a classic streamliner-era coach that gets you to the canyon and back with style and grace. Enjoy comfortable bench-style seating in the air-conditioned 1950’s-era passenger cars as the train makes it’s way across the beautiful Northern Arizona countryside. The train offers kaleidoscopic views of the San Francisco Peaks and rolls through valleys adorned in wild flowers, dense pine forest, high desert plains and small canyons.
The excitement begins at the historic 1908 Williams Depot. Before the train departs you can enjoy a wild west shootout featuring the Cataract Creek Gang in an outdoor theater, visit the free railroad museum or browse through the gift shops.
On hearing the train whistle pierce the fresh morning air, passengers board the vintage streamliner to begin their journey. Uniformed coach attendants provide you with white-gloved courtesy and service. Aboard the train, enjoy the tunes of strolling musicians who conduct sing-a-longs, an old west train robbery and the antics of western characters as they recreate train travel as it was in the early 1900’s.
