Grand Canyon Steam Train

0 Просмотры
Running between Williams, AZ and the Grand Canyon's south rim, a distance of 64 miles, the Grand Canyon Railway has become a major tourist attraction and people mover since its re-opening in 1989. Built by the Santa Fe in 1901, the line is now owned by Xanterra Parks and Resorts. While the railroad canceled its regular steam operations in 2008, they still run ex-CBQ 2-8-2 4960 on select weekends throughout the year.

In this video, you will see 4960 pulling trains in early August of 2014 as well as double heading with ATSF 3751 in May of 2012. Additionally, you will see some shots of the Grand Canyon Railway's fleet of F40FH locomotives pulling the regular trains to the canyon.

For those of you wondering, Grand Canyon Railway 4960 will be making another more in-depth appearance in Steam Trains Galore Part 3.
