Verde Canyon Railroad is next in July.
My nephew and his dad did this last November. They had a blast.

Chuck,

Sounds and looks like a great trip!  Thanks for sharing.  My wife and I visited the GC in September.  We stopped in Williams and looked around and checked out the trains.  We would definitely go back and consider taking the train.

Crazy these are both ex-AT&SF branch lines, Grand Canyon and Verde.

Scott: Not a bad excursion, they are real train freaks which is great, not like the train at Disneyland. :)
