Before climbing aboard, see a re-creation of an Old West shootout. Once en route, relax in the comfort of the train car as strolling musicians play western tunes, and coach attendants share Grand Canyon folklore and railway anecdotes. Best of all, gaze out of the window at the remarkable scenery rolling by.

High desert becomes prairie, and then prairie turns to pine, until finally the view changes so dramatically that it's plain the train has reached its destination. Welcome to the Grand Canyon.
