Coast to Coast in a 1923 Pullman

Our 1923 Pullman Sleeper-lounge-buffetDover Harbor, passengers, and volunteeer crew are traveling to the NRHS Convention. If anyone catches photos along the way and would be willing to share, please us a note. We would really appreciate it. Our Pullman only makes it way that far west about once every three years and we haven't been to Los Angeles since 2002.
A video of Dover Harbor passing Kensington, Maryland on 6/13 on the first leg of her journey is here:

Amtrak 3 Depart Chicago 6/14 arrive Los Angeles 6/16 (Southwest Chief)

NOTE: Our westbound trip was rerouted this week from the California Zephyr due to the flooding and and the corresponding Amtrak Service Disruption.

Eastbound itinerary:
