It is now time for that little kid who lives inside you to fulfill a childhood fantasy. Savor the day from inside the cab of a rare and powerful American-built locomotive. During the ride-along, you’ll be seated between the engineer and conductor inside the cab of the Railroad’s classic 1953 General Motors EMD FP7 for the four-hour journey from Clarkdale to Perkinsville and back. You’ll start the day dressed in complimentary Verde Canyon Railroad safety gear, ready to assist the engineer and conductor in their train preparations. You’ll have lunch at the Copper Spike Café in the depot before the train departs, and upon your return, you’ll receive a framed photograph of you and the crew, an Honorary Engineer’s Guild certificate, numbered and signed by the owner; and an exclusive behind-the-scenes Guild Member’s book to commemorate the perfect day.
Not more than 20 people, mostly employees, have experienced 1500 horses under the hood while riding a surge of enormous power since the Railroad’s inception more than two decades ago. You can be next!
