Chicago to Los Angles

These photos were taken from the back of Amtrak's Southwest Chief on January 13-14, 2010. Three sections of the line were photographed as shown on the map below.

On each page, you will see a description such as this:

1138 East Canyoncito

  • 1138 is an arbitrary number to keep the photos in order.
  • East indicates the photo is looking in the eastward direction.
  • Canyoncito is the name of the interlocking. Intermediate signals are identified by their number rather than a name.
