Unfortunately west coast and mid USA train schedules are not very traveler friendly
And I may do a train vacation on west coast for fun. Suggestions welcome!

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!
The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

What is not traveller friendly? The overnight part or many of them in general?
Nonetheless, please enjoy Amtrak!
West Coast train trips would mainly be the Coast Starlight (ocean from Ventura to San Luis Obispo), and of the 4 western LD trains.
We also occasionally quarrel over whether to end the Cardinal or not (looking at you, Philly!)

I have ridden Cascades #516 (SEA-STW), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-SLO), Southwest Chief #4 (LAX-CHI), Cardinal #50 (CHI-NYP), Northeast Regional #85 (NYP-WAS), Capitol Limited #30 (HFY-WAS), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-PDX), and many Pacific Surfliners with Amtrak. I have seen, including the previous, California Zephyr #5 at SAC (with luck), what I guess to be Crescent #19 (at WAS) and Silver Meteor #97 (at WAS), and Empire Builder #28 at PDX. I have also ridden the Hokutosei in Japan, Ueno - Sapporo (now discontinued).
