There is no train service to Las Vegas, unfortunately. You could train to Los Angeles and then pick up a shuttle bus or rent a car to get to Las Vegas.

Amtrak will show you options to get to Vegas but they will take you an incredible amount of time and involve taking a 3 hour bus ride from Kingman. Unless you must take the train and have a lot of time on your hands, I suggest taking a flight.

Unfortunately, the days of "nice" ride on the train are few. If you do Google search on Amtrak reviews the bad ones out number the good ones. I have wanted to do an Amtrak trip for last 10 years, but all those bad reviews about 7 hour delays sitting on a track, train late to pick you up at your stop, train sitting for hours, smelly restrooms and extremely rude and unhappy employees. I just can't do it.

Read some of the reviews. It is possible that the trains in California are more desirable and better kept. Some are short routes like San Diego to Los Angeles. That might be a better option and you still get to have a train ride. You could also do a post over on the Calif. forum.

Southwest Airlines has great rates to Las Vegas and that's what I would recommend.

I agree that Southwest would be your best option from SA since there is no train.
