remembering amtrak's daily l.d. trains.........
Author: goneon66

when amtrak was running DAILY long distance trains, it was not uncomon to catch #3 running late in the daylight.  catching #4 running late in the daylight was a rare event for me.

here is a late #4 approaching hackberry, az on the bnsf's seligman sub when it was still a DAILY train.............

The westbound AT&SF San Francisco Chief was often late into Mojave, in the daytime (running daily).

It's short a full Superliner sleeper. Normal consist in daily service, even post-pandemic for a while, was:

- Trans Dorm Sleeper
- 2 Superliner Sleepers
- 1 Superliner Diner
- 1 Superliner Sightseer Car
- 2 to 3 Superliner Coaches

Thanks I should've said when you caught no. 4 racing up Main 1 while you were shooting a BNSF on Main 2!
