The Southwest Chief ( formerly the Southwest Limited and Super Chief ) is a passenger train operated by Amtrak on a daily 2256-mile (3631-km) route from Chicago, Illinois, to Los Angeles, California, passing through Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The route takes 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, there are views of spectacular landscapes and pristine vistas not visible from interstate highways. The scheduled time of the trip is 42 hours, 15 minutes

( I would like to point out that this is a personal project and has no affiliation with Amtrak or Flickr.Although .. I do Like Riding Amtrak Trains and spend lots of time on Flickr … The linked groups were all started and managed by myself and i have contributed to most of the groups myself with the exception of Amtrak Top Shots ….. I hope you all enjoy the photos .. The main reason for these pages is for people to have a visual image collection – where they can find where they took photos from ‘ If they have forgotten ‘ – Or to relive their trips – or to see where they might like to go and visit.. There may be more groups in the future but it has taken two years to get this together )
