Staying at Railside RV Ranch in Williams is great for train buffs. Not only does the Grand Canyon train pass by twice each day, there are also extra train cars stored nearby and the wye, where trains are turned around, is used each evening to turn the Grand Canyon Train around for the coming day.
These are shots of the train cars stored next to the RV park.
We didn't take pictures of the train on the wye, but this shows the train we saw each evening.
To top off these train sightings, one afternoon the steam engine that is used occasionally to pull the Grand Canyon Train was run up and down track next to the park. The shops where train cars are worked on is located just a little distance down the track. The Grand Canyon Trail is very proud of its green steam engine, which is fired by used cooking oil. We don't know what they were doing with the engine that day but several people were on top and they ran the engine up and down the track several times.
It is also possible to view BNSF freight trains on another track several blocks away. Obviously, this is a great place for train buffs.
