       Perhaps the best known instance is in Williams, Arizona, where 
passengers from Amtrak's Southwest Chief can connect to the Grand Canyon 
Railway.  Amtrak passengers are met at the station (actually, nothing more 
than a cinder platform in the middle of nowhere) by a Grand Canyon Railway 
van, which transports them to the Frey Marcos Hotel in Williams, where they 
can wait for the departure of the train to the Grand Canyon.
