A photographic portfolio: American Splendor Aboard the Southwest Chief.


Not all of these are things that you would see from the train, but they are near its route, such as Canyon de Chelly. Some are true train pix.

Greetings from Flagstaff.    Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos.    Love those Ponderosa Pines - one of the reasons I have chosen to make my home here!

I was a commuter railroad employee in NJ for many years until 2002, and have since been a tour guide at Grand Canyon National Park and Ketchikan, Alaska. Also, have been a National Park Volunteer at Hawaii Volcanoes and now Sunset Crater Volcano near my home. If not on Amtrak, also like long road trips, camping some of the time.

Gorgeous photos, thank you!



I'm a "little Old Lady in Tennis Shoes" (LOLITS) from Eastern Oregon. I love to travel by train, though I live way out in the toolies, far from the nearest Amtrak station (Chemult). My station would have been Baker City, but they cancelled the Oregon Pioneer just before I took my first long-distance train trip as an adult. I've taken most trains in the West, but I'm still exploring new routes in the east.
