We cover quite a bit of distance when it comes to passenger miles. Our major routes include Seattle-Los Angeles, Los Angeles-Chicago, Oakland-Chicago, Seattle-Chicago, Los Angeles-New Orleans, and Los Angeles-Salt Lake City via Las Vegas. Some are redundant with Amtrak, but leaving at different times and having different schedules as well as routes. All intercity trains offer checked baggage at most stations, and have meal service provided by either a diner or dinette (on some bilevel and Superliner consists a cafe/coach may substitute). All trains are equipped with Wi-Fi, and all Superliner-equipped trains have a lounge car identical to those found on Amtrak trains. All intercity trains have only reserved seating for coach-class. The White Sands Zephyr, Simonville Swift, Del Monte, Lark Talgo, Daylight Talgo, and City of Reno also offer reserved business-class coach seating. The Daylight Talgo also has first-class seating, while the Desert Rose and El Capitan provide first-class seating only and omit business seating. Long-distance intercity services, defined as trains with journeys stretching longer than 12 hours, provide reserved sleeper service as well. There are three types of rooms: Deluxe Bedroom, Twin Bedroom, and Roomette. All Deluxe and certain Twin bedrooms are handicap-accessible. The Western Owl is our only train to provide solely reserved sleeper service. A table of amenities for each class of service is provided as the last article on this page.
