WILLIAMS TRAIN DAY
Saturday – June 20th, 2015
9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Have a trainload of fun in Williams this Saturday!!!
See for yourself what Williams Train Day is all about by checking out this video…
Williams Train Day is Northern Arizona’s very own tribute to The Train, the history of rail travel in the Southwest, and all machines that move! On Saturday June 20, the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel’s property will have the look of a railway museum with authentic pieces of rail equipment from past and present on display – historic steam locomotives, workhorse diesel locomotives, track maintenance machines, and more! You can also see rail on the small scale as we will be hosting model railroad enthusiasts and their elaborate, life-like layouts from all over Arizona.
The excitement doesn’t stop with trains, though! We’ll also be hosting an antique & classic automobile exhibit, featuring those born to be wild masters of the pavement, and a vintage tractor and farm equipment exhibit that the kids will be sure to love! We won’t let you get away without learning something either – members of the Williams-Grand Canyon Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and the Winslow Harvey Girls will be on hand to talk about the history of rail travel and hospitality in the American Southwest.
Vintage steam locomotive No. 4960 will also return to pull the Cataract Creek Rambler on Williams Train Day! The Cataract Creek Rambler is a one-hour roundtrip excursion in our classic 1923 Pullman Cars through the pine forest surrounding Williams. It’s a true steam experience when you open the windows to smell the smoke and hear the steam whistle as the Train rambles through the Town of Williams to the pines!
