Southwest Cheif though Los Animas,Co
Author: NSDTK

A late Southwest Cheif though Los Animas Colorado on 5/3/19. 
Interesting placement of the baggage car. Wondering if that first Superliner is bad ordered .
Had to wait till I got home from seeing the 4014 to post .

Usually when a car is placed in front of the baggage car
it is deadheading to another location or to the Beech Grove
shops for repairs!

Moving smartly.  I like that it's dark enough to see interior car lights.

Is that unit #4 leading train #4?

Indeed it was #4 leading #4.  Disappointed that there are still only 2 coaches on from LA to KC.  Got to be enough traffic this time of year for 3 coaches.

Last night at Flagstaff, #44 was the second loco leading #4.  Just sayin'.

Looking forward to next big trip on the SWC to Cali at Christmas! By far and away Amtrak’s most viable LDT. Patronized and delay free overall. You can’t even drive CHI to LAX in the time it takes. Why Amtrak choose this one to kill first who knows. Out of touch Anderson...

If I remember correctly they used to max out at 90!

Took a look at a 1994 System TT and it looks like you are correct.
