Grand Canyon Railway’s south bound excursion train slows as it approaches the station at Williams, Arizona on July 10, 2016. This train originated at the south rim of the Grand Canyon and ran 64 miles to Williams on the former Santa Fe’s branch which opened in September 1901. The power for this 12-car train was F40PH No. 237 (ex-Amtrak 237) and FPB-4 No. 6860 (ex-CN and VIA Rail of the same number).
