Santa Fe Railway Grand Canyon, Arizona train station

Santa Fe Railway Grand Canyon, Arizona train station

The Santa Fe reached the south rim of the canyon in 1901. It built this log station at the Grand Canyon in 1909 to replace an earlier frame depot. It is one of the three remaining log depots in the United States. The Santa Fe ended passenger service to the Grand Canyon in 1968. Back in 1965, the family camped nearby and I spent most of the day at this station talking with the agent and crew members on the train. The train had a GP7 for power, a baggage car, a coach, and two Pullmans. One Pullman was for the westbound Grand Canyon and the other for the eastbound. The coach was practically empty. I could have ridden to Williams Junction for free, but then the family would have had to figure out how to find me. These pictures were taken on a recent trip. In the picture below, passenger are boarding the train for the trip back to Williams. For more information see Grand Canyon Railway.
