Remarks & Notes 
In 1982, eleven years after the beginning of Amtrak, one could still experience what fine passenger train service was like in the pre-Amtrak era. "Rio Grande Zephyr" was discontinued the following April.

A remnant of the original California Zephyr, this train offered great dining and many as five Vista-Dome cars for viewing the Rocky Mountain Scenery. It was the last train to be replaced by Amtrak.
