Amtrak Southwest Chief

Highlights - Train #3 & Train #4

From Amtrak's 1996 Travel Planner

Amtrak's Southwest Chief will leave you with a lifetime of memories of the spectacular beauty and unique flair of the Southwest, from a route that was blazed by Native Americans and followed by conquistadors, fur trappers, settlers -- and now you.

Scenic Highlights:

  • The Chicago Skyline hovering over the Illinois Prairie
  • A bridge across the Mississippi River that seems to go on forever
  • Waves rippling across oceans of grain in the fields of Kansas
  • Your first glimpse of the Sangre de Cristo mountains in Colorado
  • The tunnel at Raton Pass
  • The twisting canyons and spectacular scenery of New Mexico high country
  • Native American pueblos dating back hundreds of years
  • Anasazi ruins dating back thousands of years
  • Arizona's astonishing geological formations and lava flows
  • the Cajon pass leading to the Los Angeles basin

There are marvelous sights throughout this journey: Los Angels and the famous Cajon Pass; the fertile fields of Kansas, the great Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, the famous Chicago skyline.

But it's the dazzling landscapes of Arizona and New Mexico that will leave you absolutely astonished. You'll see pueblos hundreds of years old. Fantastic lava flows and geological formations. Breathtaking canyons -- some just a few feet wider than your train. Distant views of towering mountains, burning red in the southwestern sunlight.

And with Amtrak you can stop to explore any of them -- plus so many resorts and attractions of every description we couldn't begin to name them -- for a southwestern vacation you'll never forget.
