Outside the Rails

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.
