It may be a bit pricey, but it is worth it. Our trip was an amazing experience. It began at a train station practically in the middle of nowhere, but near the town of historic Clarkdale. From the moment we stepped aboard the fully-restored vintage train, we were relaxed and ready for our four-hour excursion. This trip takes you on a 20-mile journey through 100 years of history. Indoor Pullman cars are climate-controlled and each has a restroom. A variety of train themed music is an integral part of the trip as we made your way through Arizona's longest-running nature. The "Monkeys" song begins informing us we are on the "Last Train to Clarksburg" - close enough. In addition to the Pullman-style seats in our coach, there is also a dedicated open air car which we can access. The open-air viewing car is equipped with shaded canopies. Attendants well-versed in the canyon's history, geology and wildlife shared highlights of our journey and answered questions. Don't miss this train!
