A few people recommended this train ride to us. It's not really anything too special, unless you haven't been exposed to the red rock area by car or hiking. It's a 4 hour ride.
If you do take this train, please do not waste your money on 'first-class'. We did first-class which included appetizers - if you call a platter of veggie sticks, a few chicken wings and some potato chips first-class food, then you'll be satisfied. They announced they'll be handing out ice cream sandwiches half-way during the trip but they charged $1 each. The recorded narration was very hard to hear unless you were sitting right under the speaker, which we weren't, so we missed 80% of the narration.
The scenery is lovely but no wildlife was seen at all, which we heard later was typical because the wildlife are not out during the daytime.
So I'm not sure why people recommend this train ride. I'm sorry to say that I wouldn't.
