Grand Canyon Railroad Terminal
The Grand Canyon Terminal 2012
In 1901 a spur of the Santa Fe Railroad to Grand Canyon Village was completed. The first scheduled train with paying passengers of the Grand Canyon Railway arrived from Williams, Arizona, on September 17 that year. The 64-mile long trip cost $3.95 , and naturalist John Muir later commended the railroad for its limited environmental impact.

Competition with the automobile forced the Santa Fe Railroad to cease operation of the Grand Canyon Railway in 1968 (only three passengers were on the last run). The railway was restored and service reintroduced in 1989, and it has since carried hundreds of passengers a day.
