What does it mean to be a tourist railway? At Grand Canyon Railway we don’t move freight or even just transport passengers from point A to point B – with our Train we create life-long memories for our guests as we take them on a journey to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World! Since 1989, we have expanded our operations in Williams, AZ beyond The Train to include our 296 room Railway Hotel, the Grand Depot Cafe family buffet restaurant, the Railway RV Park, and our on-site Pet Resort. Besides our daily, round-trip Train to and from Grand Canyon National Park, we also operate special event trains like our Pumpkin Patch Train every October followed by the world-famous Polar Express Train Ride each year!
Welcome to Williams, AZ
A small town with a big heart, Williams has so much to offer its citizens as well as visitors.

Situated in the middle of the Kaibab National Forest, one of the largest stands of Ponderosa Pine in the world, our ‘neighborhood’ includes wilderness, lakes, hiking trails, and wildlife. One of America’s friendliest small towns, Williams can’t wait to welcome you home!
