You'll experience the breadth of America, from the great cities of the East to the heartland prairies, from the majesty of snow-capped mountains to the Western desert. You'll take the fabled Broadway Limited from New York's Pennsylvania Station, through Philadelphia and Pittsburgh before changing at Chicago's Union Station for the legendary California Zephyr. Then it's across the rolling prairies and soaring mountains to Salt Lake City where you'll climb aboard the Desert Wind as it departs to Las Vegas and the California desert before making it's way, finally, to Los Angeles. The Great Trans-American Train Ride will carry you from "Sea to Shining Sea" on a romantic and nostalgic journey aboard the last great passenger trains of the USA.
