Chicago To Los Angeles


Chicago To Los Angeles


We invite you to join us as we reposition our cars from Chicago to Los Angeles, June 30-July 2, 2017.  Silver Rapids and Silver Solarium will be on the rear of Amtrak’s Southwest Chief, departing Chicago at 3:00 PM on June 30th, arriving Los Angeles 8:15 AM. July 2. This journey will travel through Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Meal service will be in the Vista-dome of Silver Solarium.  Naturally our service includes our original California Zephyr tablecloths, and our own registered-pattern monogram china.  All meals will be prepared fresh on board by our chefs.


Private railroad cars now allow travelers the option to step back in time and recapture that romantic era of train travel that Amtrak cannot provide. Once upon a time rail barons and wealthy socialites traveled the country on luxurious private railroad cars, dining on fine china and crystal and being pampered by the onboard staff. Now this form of luxury rail travel is being offering to everyone at a very reasonable price. Passengers can sip on cocktails and nibble on hors d' oeuvres while sinking into deep leather sofas in lounges and vista domes and relax by the rhythm of the train wheels rolling down the track. All meals are prepared fresh onboard and made to order by the onboard gourmet chefs.


These private luxury rail cars are coupled onto the rear of scheduled Amtrak passenger trains all over the country. Our first class passengers are separated from the Amtrak passengers by locked doors. We provide our own onboard staff including our chef and make up our own gourmet menus for all meals. All drinks and food is included in the ticket price from the time you step onboard until you detrain. Everything is first class with every detail included. This is passenger train travel at it's finest.
