Our steam locomotives pull the train on the first Saturday of the month from March to October.
The Grand Canyon Railway celebrates the history of rail travel with several steam-powered excursions to Grand Canyon National Park each year. An operational steam locomotive can be a rare sight in the 21st century, which is why we keep two fully-restored vintage steam locomotives in service to pull the train on select dates throughout the year.
Check the calendar to see which dates will feature either GCR No. 29 or GCR No. 4960 out in front of The Train on #SteamSaturday or for other special occasions.
Note: During Steam Saturdays, only the 9:30 a.m. train will be a steam engine.
