Coming soon, in the next few days.....

I take you back to the Fall of 1995, specifically September 1995, just before parents Burlington Northern Inc. and Santa Fe Pacific Corporation were acquired on September 22, 1995 by the new Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation. This is the fourth segment of the 1995 Westbound Southwest Chief. After arriving in Newton, KS. about 45 minutes behind schedule you will continue your journey to Los Angeles on the La Junta Sub. The Dispatcher has informed you that two private cars are to be attached to your consist while you're at the Newton station stop. Santa Fe will attached these cars to your consist so wait for your conductor's call to proceed before continuing your journey. The two cars, a Dome car and an Observation car, can be observed being attached to you consist while in the station by using the "Ext View 2" camera. The SW Chief can then proceeds onto the La Junta Sub for the run to La Junta, CO. Most of the opposing traffic is following the southern trans-con, however there are still a few trains from the Pueblo area that you will meet on your Journey. For the most part the La Junta Sub is single track with a number of passing sidings. In Dodge City you will encounter a Rail Grinder train working the second Main. If you use the Passenger view you'll be on the Observation Deck of the last private car and you will be able to see the "sparks" under the rail grinder as you leave Dodge City.
