Copper Spike Railway - Globe, AZ - a train ride through history




Copper Spike Railway in Globe, Arizona is a passenger train service that goes one-way or roundtrip from the historical Broad Street. The railway gets its name from the copper mining region that it serves. The two story depot built during 1916 is where the train leaves from Thursday through Saturday. The train goes to the Apache Gold Casino Resort.

The trip on the Copper Spike is a 1 1/2 hours round trip. There are seats available in a 1950's style dome car that has a glass roof, the Calumet Club car which has been restored or the coach cars. The train depot is open from 10:30am until 5pm Thursday through Sunday. There are three trips that riders can schedule and they can be interchanged with another return trip.

The freight office was the first of the railroad buildings to be restored during 2005 and the passenger lobby followed in 2007. The Copper Spike Railway is now restored and the historical structures as they would have appeared during the early 1900's. The train takes passengers through the historical areas of Globe, Arizona.
