The Grand Canyon Railway offers visitors a unique way to experience the Grand Canyon.

The train runs from Williams, AZ to the South Rim (a 65 mile trip). There will be a layover at the Grand Canyon, visitors are encouraged to tour the depot, which was constructed in 1910, as well as the nearby area for entertaining lunch spots.

The Old West is revitalized through this railway as actors dressed as bandits stage a mock train robbery during the return trip from the Grand Canyon to Williams.

During the winter season, the line runs The Polar Express from Williams to the “North Pole,” which is a station that is about 17 miles north of town.
