Amtrak's Southwest Chief runs daily between Chicago and Los Angeles, through the vast expanse of the fabled American West.
You'll be mesmerized by this region's beauty and allure. We'll take you across the mighty Mississippi through eight states-past wheat fields and ranches, missions and pueblos, mountains and deserts. Carving through curving canyon passages only a few feet wider than the train itself, you'll see spectacular landscapes and pristine vistas not visible from interstate highways.
See the Majestic Grand Canyon
Arrive just steps away from the south rim of the Grand Canyon, with Thruway bus connections at Williams, AZ to the Grand Canyon Railway. On this century-old railway, you'll be entertained by cowboys, musicians and a mock early 1900s-style train robbery.
Getaway to Santa Fe
The Lamu Shuttle Service meets Southwest Chief trains daily for an easy ride to Santa Fe hotels. Return service to Lamy is also rpovided. Advance reservations are required.
Enjoy the Ride on the Southwest Chief
Onboard the Southwest Chief, enjoy Superliner Sleeping and Dining Car accommodations, feature movies in the evening, and spectacular views from our renowned Sightseer Lounge Car.
