Maura Daly Phinney writes about her experience on the Grand Canyon Railway.

The Williams train depot is the hub of a complex that includes a hotel, restaurant, gift shop and "pet resort." Since I was traveling without any fluffy companions, I proceeded directly to the ticket window. There are four classes of service on the train, and I opted to go cheap on the northbound trip to the Grand Canyon with a $37.50 coach seat and then splurge on the return with a $70 first-class seat. If I had been feeling really flush, there was also the option of an $85 seat in the observation dome or a $95 ticket in the luxury parlor cars.
