The Grand Canyon Railway operates the former Santa Fe line from Williams to the rim, during the summer they operate the trains with their three serviceable steamers but after labourday two ex-VIA cab units come to the scene. Depending on the trainload one, two or three (A-B-A!) units bring the travellers to the Grand Canyon.

A still recent acquisition were the also ex-VIA units 6762, 6768 plus another FPB-4! More locos for more trains to the rim... The units are awaiting restoration and are still in (aged) VIA paint.
