Depot Inn & Suites

The Amtrak Southwest Chief provides daily passenger rail travel between Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California, with major cities along the route including Kansas City and Albuquerque. The route of the Amtrak Southwest Chief has a stop in La Plata, Missouri, the home of the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundaton (APRHF), an Exhibition of Amtrak History, the Rail Lookout Cabin & Deck, and the Depot Inn & Suites in the heart of Silver Rails Country.

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.
