    Step into the train depot and yesteryear
    A throwback to another era, the train depot was very nice to visit while we waited for the train. A wonderful gift shop - something for everyone. The shop assistants were knowledgeable and polite - we felt very comfortable here.

    Great time for the entire family
    The Train was a great experience for all ages. The staff was amazing, very organized and fun events on the ride up and back. The grandsons loved the scavenger hunt and musicians on the way up. The top favorite of all was the ‘robbery’ on the way back. Highly recommend.

    This depot co-located with the hotel, is the place where you pick up your tickets for the train. It is also a very large gift shop and there is also a coffee shop located here. Around the area are static displays of various railroad equipment, Shay locomotive, caboose.

Nice quality gift shop that offered many of the same items in the GC gift shops at the same prices. We purchased our train tickets as part of a package, so they were given to us when we checked into the hotel.

This is no museum. It is just a train station. Catch the train that takes you to Grand Canyon National park from here.

The ride was beautiful and entertaining a must to do. We laughed, sang and enjoyed the views. We rode in coach to the canyon and the dome car on the way home. Great day.

This is a wonderfully educational place to see and learn about the trains that take you into the Grand Canyon. There's a lot to walk around and see and it is very central to everything in Williams. A little pricey.
