As breathtaking as an eagle is in flight, a face-to-face encounter with a raptor is an equally astounding event. Phoenix's Liberty Wildlife share the majesty of a rescued bald eagle and other rescued raptors with visitors at the depot and on the train on select days throughout the year. Everyone has the opportunity for personal interaction. One Saturday per month we are joined by a Bald Eagle on board, making Verde Canyon Railroad the only train in the world ridden by a raptor! Midweek patio events take place from 11:00am-12:45pm at the depot. During the summer months, "Reptiles at the Rails" are featured.
