City of New Orleans

Chicago - Memphis - New Orleans
City of New Orleans Route Map
close
Over 900 Miles between Chicago and New Orleans

Your journey on the City of New Orleans takes you through the heart of our nation's musical heritage — from Chicago with its world-class Chicago Symphony Orchestra and still vibrant electric blues scene, to Beale Street in Memphis. Then, travel the history-laden musical crossroads of Mississippi to New Orleans — the birthplace of jazz. You'll be riding in the shadows of giants of American music like Louis Armstrong, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Elvis Presley.

Spacious Superliner accommodations make your trip extra enjoyable, with showers and thoughtful amenities, friendly service and fine dining. Choose a wide, comfortable Reserved Coach seat, or make reservations for Sleeper Service accommodations. In the daylight hours, find a spot in the Sightseer Lounge, and enjoy the spectacular scenery roll past.

Full Dining Car breakfast service is available on southbound Train 59 while express continental breakfast service will be offered on northbound Train 58.

Cross Country Café
