You can also make connections to additional Amtrak services including the Texas Eagle, Coast Starlight, Pacific Surfliner and San Joaquin.

Diverse Destinations

Deboard in Alpine, Texas to visit Big Bend National Park, in Tucson to visit Saguaro National Park, or in Maricopa, Arizona, the gateway to Phoenix and the resorts and spas of Scottsdale.

In season, onboard National Park Guides provide insights about the changing vista and natural heritage of the region you'll travel through. Sit back, relax, and learn as you take in the desert and coastal landscapes of this great American panorama.

Trails & Rails - Heritage Appreciation On Board

Trails & Rails Logo An innovative partnership program between the National Park Service and Amtrak, the Trails & Rails program provides Amtrak passengers with educational opportunities to foster an appreciation of a selected region's natural and cultural heritage and renews the long tradition of associating railroads with National Parks. As part of the Trails & Rails program, National Park Service guides from the Amistad National Recreation Area are onboard the Sunset Limited between New Orleans and Houston.
