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.

  • It is a railway station connecting the Grand Canyon from the town "Williams" outside the Grand Canyon Park. This year is the year of the Grand Canyon centennial, and there was a railway event, but when I visited, I saw only the deserted building, but it is a wonderful building in the log house style.

  • Don't expect anything elaborate. It's a railway station with the history of the train depot. It's dark inside, not very comfortable and there's much more to see in the village than at the depot.  more »
