Verde Canyon RR Trip, 16 June 2012 May 18th, 2012
Fellow ARPA Members,
Join us for an excursion on the Verde Canyon Railroad Saturday, June 16.
We will be travelling first class. For those who remember, the ambiance of our accommodations will resemble that of a lounge car on the Chief, with comfortable sofas, lounge chairs, and tables. Our air-conditioned car will be next to an open car (with sun shades) in order to fully enjoy the Sedona-like scenery through which the train passes on our four-hour round trip up the Verde River Canyon to Perkinsville and return.
The cost per person will be $72.00–a $7.95 savings over the regular first class fare. (Children aged two and under ride free) The price includes an ample supply of “heavy hors doeuvres” in our car. A small cash bar is located at the end of the car.
The train departs from the VCRR station in Clarkdale promptly at 1:00 pm. (See attached map for directions) We suggest that all tour members arrive at the depot no later than 12:00 Noon. There are a snack bar and cafe located at the depot.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to ride as space is limited. In any event, we need to have all reservations no later than Thursday, May 31.
Please make checks payable to “Arizona Rail Passenger Association” and mail to:
