Verde Canyon Railroad - At The Station

The Verde Canyon Railroad runs between Clarkdale, Arizona and a working ranch named Perkinsville, a distance of about 20 miles.  The tracks were originally part of a branch line of the Santa Fe Railway, connecting Clarkdale with the SF main line at Drake, and which is now owned by the Arizona Central Railway.  For more information, go to Verde Canyon Railway's official site.

Here's the entrance to the Clarkdale station, as seen from across the street.

This old railcar has been converted into a museum.

In front of a picnic area is a metal statue of a golden eagle, perched on a rail.

These two diesels were at the front of our train.

Some of the passengers wandered down to their cars.
