Grand Canyon Railway departs each day from the historic Williams Depot. The depot was built in 1908 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. The depot was much more than a place to get tickets. It was home to a Harvey House Hotel, which had 43 rooms. There was also a formal dining room as well as a cafe, bar and a news room. The depot is the oldest poured-concrete structure in the state of Arizona. Today, the depot is where passengers of Grand Canyon Railway pick up their tickets. There is also an expansive gift shop in the depot full of Grand Canyon Railway and Grand Canyon mementos. Both the Williams Depot and original Fray Marcos Hotel are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Machine 2 has been moved into the Depot proper. It is just inside the main entrance and immediately to your left as you enter. All have 'Williams, Arizona' on them. Designs are:
1) 'Arizona Route 66', sign,
2) 'Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel', Logo,
3) 'Grand Canyon Railway, Baldwin #4960, Greatest Train in America', image of engine.
4) 'Grand Canyon Railway, Arizona Elk Cervus Merriami', Elk
The tokens are 1.5-inch-diameter, gold-colored coins/medallions with an image on the obverse and corresponding text on the reverse. They cost 3 for $10 or $4 each (machine does not give change). I found a "Grand Canyon National Park Medallion Collector Book" for these tokens at the Desert View Trading Post inside the Grand Canyon National Park.
Moved 1 moved to the Grand Canyon Rail Road RV Park in Williams.
