This train passes through three time zones on its cross country
journey. Generally, all time changes occur during the night. For
all practical purposes, you may adjust your clocks before retiring
for the night to reflect the following day's schedule. WESTBOUND
passengers will want to set their watches BACK on hour each night,
while EASTBOUND passengers will want to set theirs one houd AHEAD.
Please take this into consideration when planning your morning.
If you desire a wake-up call or wish to have breakfast in the Diner,
remember, the crew will be operating on the next day's correct LOCAL time.
All arrival and departure times are listed in the timetable according to
the local time in each zone.
