How about a scenic train ride?

Hello everyone,
I get the travel/adventure bug more often than not. This train ride is reportedy very enjoyable and scenic. It has bridges, trestles and even a tunnel! Who may be interested in attending? Below are 2 links that provide further info. Once we see who may be interested in going, we can plan when to do it. I am flexible on this but, guessing a Saturday is best but, probably the most crowded. Let me know your thoughts.

    I am sending out a group email with more info, please respond if you wish to go.
    We will meet at the IHOP 2103 w Happy Valley rd off of I-17. How about we leave there 7:30am? According to bing maps, it is 90 min to the depot from there. That would give us 3 hours to explore the area before getting to the depot. The train company wants us there by noon. This means we will probably need to eat lunch there as well, I know I will be hungry by then.
    Also, the train company told me today they expect to be booked solid by mid week. Based on that, we cannot go there and buy our tickets that day. If you want to go, we will need to buy them in advance today or tomorrow to make sure. The coach seats are $55 as Keith mentioned. There is lots of info on their site. This looks like a real good way to spend the day, esp this time of year.
    You can take your own vehicle or car pool, I will be taking my 66 GTO.

      Hello,
      Yes, we are on for Sat. I sent a group email to all members on Sunday with details. There is also info in this column. my cell is[masked], not into texting. I already have 3 going in my car. Can you 2 ride together? or, we are meeting at the IHOP. I bought the standard coarch tickets. You can buy Coach also or buy the 1st class if you prefer. It says, all classes have access to the open air car. Any questions, please post of call me. Thanks :)

      I will meet everyone in Clarkdale as I do not want to leave that early in the morning. I won't even be awake at that time. I will take your number and when I get there give you a buzz to see where everyone is at. That way if I want to stick around to do some shooting or even head to Sedona I will be able to do so and not have to worry about coming back on someone else's schedule.

    Please reply with your thoughts so we can finalize everthing.
    The IHOP were we will meet should be fine to leave your car there but, Keith is going to check it out tomorrow to make sure. If, for some reason, it does not look like a good place, we will change it to another place nearby.
    let us know.
    thanks

    I'm very interested n always wanted to do this. I'm having surgery on my wrist Monday so hopefully I'll be much better by the time this is planned.

    The 9th is also not good for me. The 2nd would be a maybe.

    This is something I have always wanted to do. This is also the day of the First AZ Fall Festival which I usually help out with. RIght now the date selected probably won't work for me. If it were any other Sat (Like 11/2 best one) I would attend. But it probably will get quite cold into the later part of Nov.
    So that is the day I am suggesting 11/2. Leaves should still be colorful as peak time is late Oct.

    I rode this train a couple years ago. The scenery along the rails is beautiful. I will say I will go for now but a final decision will have to be made when all plans are firmed up.
