Grand Canyon National Park is now accepting comments on the train operations at the South Rim.
Comment Period: 09/04/2008 - 10/04/2008
Topic Questions Instructions:
Please feel free to provide your input on these topics as well as any other concerns or ideas you have.
Topic Questions:
1. 1. Please provide input on the Railway using only diesel powered engines instead of historic steam engines and placing a steam engine on display near the Grand Canyon Depot.

2. Please provide input on train noise. What hours of the day is locomotive noise acceptable? If the train no longer blows a whistle in the park does this take care of the problem in your opinion?

3. Please provide input on the evening train ride. This offering is not a means of transportation but a way for visitors to enjoy the historic use of trains in the park.
