Savor the day with a locomotive ride-along, where you’ll be seated between the engineer and conductor inside the cab of the Railroad’s classic 1953 General Motors EMD FP7. You’ll start the day dressed in complimentary Verde Canyon Railroad safety gear, ready to assist the engineer and conductor. You’ll have lunch at the Copper Spike Café in the depot before the train departs. When you return you’ll receive a framed photograph of you and the crew with a certificate of completion, numbered and signed by the owner of Verde Canyon Railroad to commemorate the perfect day.

Ride A Long Requirements

At Verde Canyon Railroad, safety outweighs all other considerations when conducting our day-to-day business of transporting our passengers.  To ensure this, Verde Canyon Railroad has developed rigorous internal policies and practices to achieve the highest possible level of safety for our employees, our customers and our Canyon. During your initial  experience at the depot, you will need to pass our standard safety test. Please  download  the “Safety Test Study Guide” provided to be prepared to take this test.

Prior to final confirmation of your reservation we do require a background check.  A liability release form with a clear copy of your driver’s license is required.
