Beautiful scenery on a historic route that you not only cannot get to by car, why would you want to? Sit back and relax on this refurbished train, go out on the viewing platform, enjoy a drink, listen to the interesting narrative by a local guide who is also available to answer any questions. As with a previous reviewer, we booked seats in a first class car but did not realize that buffet lunch was included.It looked good. Beverages extra. This is not a loop but apx. 2 hrs. out then the train is reversed, but the canyon offers such spectacular views that the time goes quickly and you are bound to see things you missed on the outbound trip. Take your camera!
