Depot Inn and Suites
La Plata, Missouri
A Private Railcar Travel Destination !
If you own a private passenger railcar or operate private railcar tours, you may want to consider the
Depot Inn and Suites in La Plata, Missouri, in your future rail travel plans.
If you hook a private railcar to the back of the eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief in Los Angeles,
you can spend two or more days at the Depot Inn & Suites in La Plata, Missouri,
then reboard your private railcar when it arrives back into La Plata
on the returning westbound Amtrak Southwest Chief.
The eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief departs from Los Angeles every evening at 6:45 PM. This train arrives into La Plata the
second morning after departure at 9:57 AM. The Depot Inn & Suites will provide free shuttle service between the Amtrak
station and the hotel for all of your passengers. Your private railcar will continue eastbound on the Amtrak Southwest Chief
which is scheduled to arrive into Chicago a bit more than 5 hours later at 3:20 PM.
You can have your private railcar switched off from the eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief and switched onto the westbound
Amtrak Southwest Chief that is scheduled to depart from Chicago about 24 hours later at 3:15 PM. The westbound Amtrak
Southwest Chief is scheduled to depart from La Plata at 8:06 PM the evening of the day after you arrived into La Plata.
There are also other options for arriving by private railcar into La Plata and staying at the Depot Inn & Suites.
You could have your railcar stay more than just overnight in Chicago before being switched onto the westbound
Amtrak Southwest Chief, thus lengthening your stay at the Depot Inn & Suites. Another option would be to have your
passengers ride up to Chicago in Coach on the Amtrak Southwest Chief, which is just 5 hours and 20 minutes, and then
reboard your private passenger car in Chicago. This can be useful if you wish to continue your journey in your
private railcar in another direction rather than head back to Los Angeles.
Since Chicago is the most major hub for the entire Amtrak system, a stay in La Plata can be made part of almost any
private railcar journey regardless of your route across the nation. As long as you are willing to switch your private car
off of Amtrak and leave it parked in Chicago for at least two nights, you can easily allocate time to explore the
Depot Inn & Suites and the environs of La Plata, Missouri! Just leave your private railcar in Chicago and ride Coach
aboard the westbound Amtrak Southwest Chief for a bit more than 5 hours to arrive into La Plata at 8:06 PM. A free
shuttle will take your passengers to the Depot Inn & Suites where you can spend one or more days before returning on
the 9:57 AM eastbound Amtrak Southwest Chief back to Chicago and your private railcar.
Over time we plan to be doing a lot of promotion of rail travel to the Depot Inn & Suites, and later to the Rail Resort.
