Anyone taking the train to the Grand Canyon winds up at the Depot because check-in for the train is at the Depot. Like most depots I have been in, expect long lines. Once you checked-in, walk around for a little history.

We stopped here on the way out of Grand Canyon National Park. Breakfast buffet was ok and extensive. Then we went next door to the historic train depot, looked at the old trains, watched the modern train depart for the canyon and browsed in the gift shop.

Gift shop is like any other. However, the buffet features deep fried French toast....the stuff is like crack. Have one piece and you will definitely be going back for more. Great way to start the journey by train to the Canyon.

Outstanding trip. Should have made the 3 day stay instead of 2. Hotel staff was great, train ride a lot of fun and the grand canyon was unbelievable.

Though it still functions as a train depot for the train to Grand Canyon Village. It is a sovereign shop and touristy type of attraction. It is fun and a good place to wait for the train.
