The cars depart will Emeryville attached to Amtrak’s train #6, the California Zephyr, at 09:10 AM PDT.

The Zephyr’s journey will take the Northern Sky and Berlin through Sacramento, the capital of California at around 11:00 AM. The train is scheduled to pass through Reno, NV,  at 4:06 PM and just in time for afternoon hors d’oeuvres. Salt Lake City will come and go in the night, but breakfast will be served as the train snakes it way along the shore of the Colorado River. This is arguably one of the most scenic parts of any Amtrak route. You will enjoy this stunning view in the 360 degree glass dome of the Northern Sky. A view the typical Amtrak passenger will not enjoy. Next we will descend the Rocky Mountains into Denver, CO, for a scheduled arrival of 6:30 PM (MT). Dinner will be served after departure (schedule permitting).

The final day of the trip is spent crossing the heartland and the rolling hills of Iowa and Illinois. The highlight of the day is the Mississippi River crossing. Our scheduled arrival into Chicago is on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 2:50 PM (CST).
