Amtrak California Zephyr
Steve's Travelogues

Photographs, travelogues, accommodations, and other information about train travel on the Amtrak California Zephyr route.

Special Information:

Which Side?

Facing toward the engines, I currently believe the right side when traveling east is the best side to be on. Going west, that would be the left side. Most sights seem to be on that side. If you find yourself on the wrong side, don't fret! There are windows downstairs in the center of the train at each door, windows on both sides in the lounge car both upstairs and downstairs, and you can even sometimes find an empty room on the better side for sights.

Radio Frequencies:

These are only approximate. The frequencies indicated below were being used by the Engineer, Conductors and Dispatchers at the stations indicated along the route of the California Zephyr. The use of any particular frequency may have started before the station indicated and almost always ended well after the station indicated.

  • Channel 96 - 161.550 - Oakland, California
  • Channel 14 - 160.320 - Colfax, California
  • Channel 23 - 160.455 - Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Channel 54 - 160.920 - Grand Junction, Colorado
  • Channel 23 - 160.455 - East after Grand Junction, Colorado

Channel 23 (160.455) might be the working frequency of the California Zephyr for much of its journey east of Salt Lake City. Channel 54 (160.920) might be something just used at the Grand Junction station in Colorado.
