Cheri and I have been on the train a couple times, and it is accessible. We will get you a ride to the station, and a lift puts you on the train and takes you off. Also the buses at the Canyon are the kneeling type so you should have no problems.

Thanks I can walk,get on and off the train with no problem,but due to weakness in my lower back I can't walk far or long distances. Does the train drop you off and you have hours to walk around and sight see before you get back on the train,that is my main concern. thanks again!

Diane,
Last time we were there, the shuttle buses were everywhere. They pick you up and drop you off at several different overlooks. Then another comes along in a few minutes. Minimal walking if you don't want to or can't. We haven't been there for a few years, so someone else may have more recent experience.

I'm glad to hear that buses will pick us up and take us down the road to another lookout point. Having never been to the Grand Canyon myself, I was afraid that there would be a lot of walking during the site-seeing trip. Like Diane, I'm really not up for a LOT of walking - I just want to stand and look and say Oh my gosh!

I would like to know if there will be restrooms and places to cool off w/ something cold to drink along the "route" from one overlook to the next. Or do we plan to bring some type of backpack w/ refreshments in it?

Last question....I've seen pictures of some kind of glass overlook that is actually built out over the Grand Canyon. Will this be on one of our stops?

Sandy

Yes, the Buses afford you the advantage to see more of the Canyon,like I said they are the kneeling type to make it easier to get in. Also the RV Park offers box lunches. (Sandwich,chip,drink and a cookie I think) We will have the exact menu when we get to the park. The cost is $11.00 there are also several restaurants where we get off the train and a few gift shops along the way that have water, and I will be asking that everyone carries water all the time. You will be in a higher elevation then most are used to, and you will dehydrate without warning. It is a proven fact it takes at least 10 days to get used to the elevation. More on the water later.

It is also a good idea to carry a back pack to hold water, sun tan lotion, and it will also be some place for all the souvenirs ya'll will be getting. You ladies can leave those 50 lb purses in the camper just bring what you need,in the back pack.

Sandy the glass overlook is no where near where we will be, here is the link http://www.grandcanyonskywalk.com/ as you will see the cost is about 75.00 with the extra tickets you must buy.( The reason it wasn't part of the package and then we also needed a bus.)

We will have water at the park, if anyone else wants to bring a case or 2 I will get the ice to keep it cold.

I guess this means you're not interested in the mule ride, either.....
