Sleeper to DEN?

 

Steve

 

Since mid-June.

 

That's new to me. Any ideas on why?

 

Steve

 

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.

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

It's been a couple of months since I've ridden but have they put the sleepers back on the head end of the Crescent?

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.

* No STL local coach during track work.[/]

Two questions.

 

Is there no 2120/2220 on SL days; i.e., does the TE always only have one sleeper?

 

Do they really split up the two thru cars, 2130/2230 and 2115/2215 and put one in between the trans-dorm and CCC and the other on the end? I guess with a 7+ hour layover, they can do whatever they want.

From a reply in other thread here, I thought with this latest experiment with the Viewliners on the rear, that the Heritage Baggage also moved from the first car, to the last car, to eliminate the Viewliner's tendency to "tail wag". :ohboy:

My understanding was the comment said that the bag would potentially solve the wagging, but not that it had been done.

Yup! Every day the Texas Eagle consist is the exact same. On Sunset days, the lone sleeper is the 2120/2220 car, and on Sunset days, that sleeper is the 2130/2230 car.

 

I've never been able to stay awake to see the switching in SAS, but I know it is quite complicated. On through Sunset days, the sleeper is indeed taken out of the middle of the consist and tacked onto the last coach then tacked on to westbound Sunset.

 

Going eastbound, the Eagle sleeper is taken off the Sunset consist and put back into the middle of the Texas Eagle consist, ready to go northbound later in the morning.
