Depot Inn and Suites
La Plata, Missouri
A Private Railcar Travel Destination !
www.trainweb.com/depotinn/carowners.html

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. If you are interested in arranging and promoting rail tours in your private passenger car to the Depot Inn & Suites in La Plata, Missouri, please write to us with your ideas and suggestsions at depotinn@trainweb.com .
