Take in the grandeur of the country on an adventure between Chicago and Los Angeles through the vast expanse of the fabled American West. Prepare to be mesmerized by this region's beauty and allure while crossing 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 spectacular landscapes and pristine vistas to be seen that are not visible from interstate highways.
All aboard for travel by train on a series of cars - dining, lounge and sleeper. In close quarters, experience the country with hospitality second to none. Eat, sleep and be entertained with service and sights on the tracks. Tune in as Jack and Allié document each detail. Want a preview of the sleeper car experience?
