We will be visiting a friend in Atlanta and are thinking of making the trip back to LA via train. Due to time restraints we only have two days for this. So I was thinking of flying to either Chicago and taking the Southwest Chief or New Orleans and taking the Sunset Limited. Anyone have an opinion on which one would be best?
At the moment I am leaning to the Southwest Chief but only because we can then say we have been to Chicago and it does get into LA later which is better.
Also any tips on what would improve the experience would be very much appreciated. It’s fair to say my partner is less interested than I am so I’m a little worried she might not enjoy it. Anything I can do to make it a better experience for her would be great. We are going to take a Superliner Bedroom and will start the trip on the 11th February 2013.
What’s the issue with baggage can we not get access to it once it’s checked?
Thanks for your help.
