Default Grand Canyon Railway

I was lucky to include a trip to the Grand Canyon by rail on a recent holiday. We traveled overnight from Los Angeles to Flagstaff and then transferred by bus to Williams for the Grand Canyon Railway.
At the Williams depot there is all sorts of interesting things to see and the trip to the Canyon is really enjoyable.
The Grand Canyon itself is breathtaking and I am very glad to finally have seen it in person.
Some pics below.
