Grand Canyon Railway Depot, Grand Canyon National Park

Take a step back in time at Grand Canyon Railway Depot, a national historic landmark at the end of the railroad tracks and within 100 m (330 ft) of the rim of the canyon. Dating back to 1909, the depot was built with logs and features a rustic interior with four rooms, a ticket office, a baggage room, and a small upstairs apartment. As one of the oldest surviving wooden train depots in the country, this is a great place to start exploring the history of railroads and their role in promoting U.S. National Parks.

  • The grand cayon railway was a little slow, so the kids were tired towards the end, but we managed to get to the end. If you're in a hurry, the car will arrive earlier.

  • While I would rate the train ride 4 stars +, the terminal itself at the grand canyon did not have staff available to assist customers. For that two stars.  more »
