Postcard-perfect scenery is the magic of Verde Canyon Railroad. Passengers lose themselves in the crisp canyon air, the snaking curves of the Verde River and beauty of glorious red rock formations.
Serenaded by classic railroad tunes and the clickety-clack of wheels along the tracks of this historic wilderness route, friends and family may dance together to “The Locomotion,” cheer as the train passes through the dark 680-foot tunnel, and toast the day with a prickly pear margarita.
First-class cars boast comfortable seating, complimentary appetizers and a full-service bar. Coach offers vintage Pullman-style seating, enormous viewing windows and snack bars. The caboose is a private car with personal attendant and private platforms. Everyone has access to open-air viewing cars where photographic opportunities abound.
