History at it's best. You can take a walk through history of Route 66 and the train that has brought Williams, AZ back from the brink of extinction. Love the TRAIN and the show that goes with it.

The suitcases that you're taking to the canyon need to be dropped off in the Railway Hotel lobby in the morning. They'll take them all the way to your room at the canyon. Extra luggage will have to stay in your car. You... More
