This attraction is worth every penny it costs. The train trip leaves the station near Clarkdale, takes you through the Verde Valley, alongside the Verde River, through a mountainside tunnel, and to the ranch known as Perkinsville (a set that was used in the movie "How the West Was Won") where the engine switches from one end to the other, and then retraces the track back to Clarkdale. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, the guides aboard each of the open-air cars are entertaining, the enclosed cars are comfortable, and the food and drinks offered are reasonable. Our family and guests have taken this trip every year for the past seven years, and look forward to this year's trip.
