Southwest Chief

General Information:
If you’re planning on travelling to and from Los Angeles, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Topeka, Kansas City, and Chicago, look no further than the Southwest Chief. The Southwest Chief features double-decker Superliner equipment, including comfortable, reclining seats in coach, comfortable beds in sleepers, wrap-around windows with seats and a snack bar in the lounge, and delicious fresh-cooked meals in the diner. The Southwest Chief also has the honor of being Amtrak’s fastest long-distance train, with 90 M.P.H trackage over a large portion of the route. This is espically true between Chicago and Kansas city, because the Southwest Chief travels where the interstates do not. By driving, one must go through St. Louis, which is a much longer route than the Southwest Chief’s Kansas City-Chicago route. Next trip think the Southwest Chief!
