Vintage Steam Locomotive SetsOff On Grand Canyon Railway

The Grand Canyon Railway celebrates the history of rail travel with several steam-powered trips during the summer season. Grand Canyon shared the news that a fully-restored steam locomotive will pull the train to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona on the first Saturday of each month during the summer season.

The park shared a video of their Steam Locomotive No. 4960 departing on the rail tracks in the Grand Canyon National Park, yesterday (13 June). The fully-restored vintage locomotive No.4960 was built in 1923, serving the American Midwest for fifty years before retiring for exhibition. In 1989, the Grand Canyon Railway purchased No.4960 and restored it to its original condition. Today, train No. 4960 is powered not by coal but by recycled vegetable oil.
