Be sure to spend the $20 extra to go first class on this 4 hour rail trip through Verde Canyon...it includes living room-style seating, and excellent hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and snacks (chicken wings, cheese, olives and crackers, salad, sandwiches, and desserts). And - the price difference is even less if you have an AARP membership card!
The views from the open air cars are amazing - a photographer's dream, especially in the Fall! Only complaint I have would be that the rail cars' windows were horribly dirty, making it almost impossible to take pictures (or even see clearly) from inside.
