Very friendly! The pre-boarding wild west show was a little lame but because it was so lame I thought it was funny.

There were people who walked in at the last minute who were allowed onto the train without a hitch. So... More

We had a great time at the train depot. Lots to see and do, we toured a caboose and viewed a local miniture train displays. We learned a great deal about trains and how the helped in a huge way to settle the wild west.

This train trip was more for older people and families, loved our conductor, he had lots of little fun fact stories and the "train robbery" was a little cheesy but, super funny! Hope you have a good time on your trip!

loved the way they kept it real just like when it was built. This a place where you can go and relax with a small town feeling.

A large gift shop, plus ticketing for the railway. If there were displays, they weren't readily apparent.

Architecture- Log cabin style- be at the depot on the day you are scheduled to depart. Don't be late- That was our only trip back to the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel.

This depot is very rustic in appearance and if full of odds and ends to purchase for your trip. They have candy, water bottles, bath and body items, as well as other mementos to remember your trip. The staff are friendly and make sure to visit the wild west shoot out show prior to departure. Fun for the whole family.

Wander through Williams Depot and wander through another era, For those looking for a special memento, the selection is vast. For those waiting on shoppers, displays and signs will keep one busy.
