There's be a lot of talk about Amtrak, and it's faltering support of long distance trains. Including the Southwest Chief. Here's three shots I took of it on June 14th, 2013 in Flagstaff, Arizona.

NICE photo's, Al. All too soon I think those bilevel cars might be history from scuttlebutt on the web. Same with the power - it's getting a bit long in the tooth and rather than rebuild for less cost I think Amtrak will go for brand new, untested.
