AAA Editor Notes

Grand Canyon Railway, .5 mi. s. of I-40 exit 163 (Grand Canyon Blvd.), offers round-trip excursions through grassy plains and pine forests to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon aboard 1950s-era passenger cars powered by vintage diesel locomotives. Strolling musicians, Western characters and a mock train robbery provide entertainment during the ride. Passengers arrive at the 1910 Grand Canyon Depot, in the historic district at the South Rim; the depot is the only working log depot in the country. A Wild West show takes place daily at 9. Six classes of train service are available. For an additional fee, bus tours of the South Rim with lunch are available. Refreshments are available in some cars. Guided tours are available.
Round-trip coach fare $79; $49 (ages 2-15). Round-trip first-class fare $152; $118 (ages 2-15). One-way fare available; upgraded seats are available for an additional fee. Fare does not include admission to Grand Canyon National Park. Fares may vary; phone ahead. Reservations are recommended.
