    Temporary cancellation of Southwest Chief between CHI and KCI?

    I believe the problem is the Mississippi bridge in Fort Madison. That bridge is closed to both auto and rail this weekend for maintenance. They are also replacing another bridge this weekend also, I think between FM and Chi. BNSF is replacing bridges in Media, Il and over grand river in...

    Lounge Attendant on the Zephyr

    A couple of years ago we were on 4 headed for Chicago. Seems like we had the same guy. When he was closing down before Chicago, he said “in the famous words of Porky Pig, that’s all folks!” Sent from my iPhone using Amtrak Forum

    I've bought the Amtrak calendar the last two years ('15 & '16) from the Amtrak store. I like it. I believe all the photos are taken by Amtrak employees. G

    First Train Ride

    Way back in the mid 60's, my church youth group took a train trip from Ft. Madison, Ia. to Chicago and the following year, went to KC. That was on the Santa Fe line. When I was a preteen, I rode the CB&Q from Omaha to Burlington, Ia with my mother a couple of times. Been hooked ever since!

    How many points does it take?

    Several years we took Illinois Zephyr/ EB/ CSL/ CZ in and out of Galesburg. We also took IZ/CONO/CONO/IZ out of GBB We would not be opposed to one of those trips again, however, would like something different. We have never been east on rail, and would we open for that. I think I will go...

    How many points does it take?

    We have had an Amtrak CC for a long time. Mid 2016 looks good for a trip somewhere, Any suggestions? We will have about 40,000 points. That sounds like a lot,but we haven't priced anywhere yet. We have gone to the west coast once, and on the CONO once.

    Late Zephyr Results in New Coffee Shop

    The coffee shop is on the opposite side of train from passengers boarding and detraining. Depends on how bad you want to spend 24 hours in Mt. Pleasant, while your luggage goes on to Chicago! I wouldn't chance it. Greg

    Late Zephyr Results in New Coffee Shop

    I stopped today, and purchased the last cinnamon roll. It large and had plenty of icing. Coffee was good also. Seemed to be fairly busy, as Amtrak 6 was about 2 hours late. Greg
