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.
We invite you to participate in any activities, games, and get-togethers scheduled each day. Feel free to attend the movies, show daily in the Sightseer(R) Lounge Car. Listen for special announcements informing you of these events.
