This line ran from 1901 to 1969. It reopened in 1989 and has been doing an excellent business since. Your trip each way to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is about 2 hours and change. Live music entertainment, as well as "interesting" characters (some robbing the train), keep you busy until you reach the rim or the hotel, depending on which way you're going. The adult fare round-trip is $55, which is costly, but it's worth it. You can also purchase package deals by going to www.thetrain.com.
