Get set for adventure as you board the Southwest Chief at Chicago's historic Union Station. Settle in your comfortable reclining seat with leg rest or private room (upgraded passengers) for a mid-afternoon departure. Relax, read or listen to music. Be sure to see the glass-walled Sightseer Lounge car with its swivel seats and expansive views. Have a glass of wine and toast to the marvelous journey ahead. You'll pass through the prairie, the plains and the mighty Mississippi River. Overnight train.
