Room With a View - Two of the First Class cars also feature an upper-level glass enclosed dome which features more seating. You haven't seen it all until you've seen the panoramic views from an air-conditioned streamliner dome car.
Fresh fruit, pastries, coffee and juice are provided on the outbound journey with champagne and snacks served on the way back. Service of fine spirits is available. It's their goal to make your trip as pleasureable as possible. A passenger service attendant will attend to your every need - from drinks from the bar to a blanket to snuggle in.
The highlight of a trip on the dome car is the views. You'll feel like you're one with the scenery. The dome car provides the only seat on the train that looks forward. Before dome cars that priviledge was only for the engineer.
The Tunes of the West
Musicians travel from car to car playing the tunes of yesteryear harkening back to times gone by.
The West is Still Wild
Each morning before the train leaves, be sure to catch the Wild West Shootout. Then, keep your eyes open while on-board the train - it's been known to be robbed from time to time.
