Amtrak has been running a short turn sleeper to Denver on and off for a number of years, largely when they actually have enough equipment to do so. They don't have enough to send it all the way to Cali, and the demand for sleeper space CHI-DEN is high enough to warrant the short turn sleeper during the summer months.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

It takes three cars to do the DEN sleeper. It would take six to run a third "regular" sleeper to EMY.

Think population ridership demographics. Think how much more populated it is from CHI to DEN.

Pickng up a 1964 Burlington timetable I find the CZ wih 12 cars and the Denver Zephyr wth 12 to 15 cars some of them seasonal.

Looks like if Amtrak only had the equipment they would run a lot more than a car or two only to Denver.

Th Denver Zephyr schedule was more geared to the overnight business traveler than was the CZ, especially eastbound. But it had a high vacation component also because some of it went all the way to Colorado Springs

I don't know if people actually care about trains' line numbers, but I figured I'd post them just in case anyone is interested.


I certainly appreciate the line numbers for the train consists. Recently I made two long distance roundtrip AGR reservations with sleeping accomodations. There was a total of eleven trains that required sleeper selections. I made it a point whenever possible to select the car closest to the dining car. Thanks for providing this information.
