THE GRAND CANYON RAILWAY COMPANY
Originally built to transport ore from the Anita mines, The Grand Canyon Railway made its inaugural journey to the Grand Canyon on September 17, 1091, after it was acquired by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe. Largely relying on tourism, the Santa Fe invested heavily in hotels and restaurants at the Grand Canyon, building the El Tovar hotel and such landmarks as the Hopi House and the Desert View Watchtower. While increasing automobile travel forced the railway to cease operation in 1968, it was reopened in 1989 in order to offer tourists a uniquely historic way of enjoying the Grand Canyon.
