We thoroughly enjoyed our ride through the "Little Grand Canyon". The scenery was beautiful. The narration was great at pointing out interesting objects to view. We purchased tickets for the first class car, and we're glad we did. There was a full bar to purchase drinks, and free appetizers. The seating is arranged in groups of two or four seats around a table. The coach cars are like a bus. All have access to the open air cars for unabstructed views. It is four hours to go up and back on the same track. Since there were no assigned seats, I would recommend getting there early.
