I had to watch your Santa Fe tape four times this weekend!!! This tape will have its special place in my library! Pat yourself on the back for sharing this rare footage.
— Al Willcoxen

Hollywood celebrities, captains of industry, and anyone willing to pay the extra fare traveled from Los Angeles to Chicago in high speed luxury. Highlights of the train’s trans-continental journey include crossing the Missouri and the mighty Mississippi rivers, snaking through slot canyons and high mountain passes such as Raton, Glorieta, Cajon, and approaches to Chicago, Kansas City and L.A. Inside the train passengers dine in the famed “Turquoise Room,” share the view from the dome car, and tuck into a cozy Pullman bedroom as night falls. Glimpses of the entire fleet of Santa Fe streamliners include The San Francisco Chief, The Texas Chief, and the silver San Diegan skirting the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The Super Chief appears in various forms from before World War II to the days just before Amtrak. This DVD takes you back to an age when people took the time to relish a trans-continental journey, and the railroads provided a luxurious experience.
