The Grand Canyon is renowned for its natural beauty, but there's man-made beauty too, as exemplified by the Grand Canyon Railway. Built in 1901, the rail service was the first motorized transportation to and from the Grand Canyon from the nearby town of Williams, Arizona, shrinking an eight-hour stagecoach ride to just two hours by rail.
