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.
