Due to planned abandonment of tracks on a segment of this route by the BNSF railroad, an alternate route is being considered for
this train which could end service to a number of towns along the route. Such a change would also terminate travel over some of the most
historic and scenic rails. These changes are a topic of hot debate by the towns and states that could lose service, by the towns and
states where the train would be re-routed, and by both train enthusiasts and passengers who rely on travel by the
Amtrak Southwest Chief. News items related to the proposed route change as well as all other news related to the
Amtrak Southwest Chief will be posted to the
Facebook Southwest Chief Page. Please LIKE this page on Facebook
