The museum located inside the old Harvey House restaurant next to the depot. Until the 1920s, most passengers, including four presidents, arrived at Grand Canyon via the Santa Fe train.
We liked seeing the trays and silver-plated serving pieces used on the white tablecloths when you dined at a Harvey House.
Most large railroad station had a Harvey House inside it for quick dining and fine dining.
The train ceased to operate in 1968, but in 1989 the Grand Canyon Railway started carrying passengers again on revamped steam locomotives.
