Verde Canyon Railroad
Arizona

Wikipedia:

The Verde Canyon Railroad is a heritage railroad near Clarkdale, Arizona, southwest of Sedona, Arizona.

Opened in 1912 as the Verde Valley Railway, it was built to support the copper mines at Jerome, Arizona. The Santa Fe Railway operated and owned the 38-mile branchline from 1912-1989, providing coal to the Phoenix Cement Company, and shipping copper and cement outbound.

New owners, the Durbano Family, took over with the Arizona Central Railroad/Verde Canyon Railroad by 1989-1990. Passenger service resumed in November 1990.

Current excursions are a 4-hour, 40-mile roundtrip from Clarkdale to the ghost ranch of Perkinsville and back. Scenes from How the West Was Won were filmed at Perkinsville in 1961. The route is nestled between two national forests and adjacent to a designated wilderness area, follows the Verde River the entire way and features a 680 foot long, curved tunnel and many bridges.

As of 2005 the Railroad carries over 100,000 passengers per year.

In March 2005 the Verde Canyon Railroad celebrated its 1 millionth passenger

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
