STARTING FROM WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, MONTANA, IDAHO, NORTHERN OREGON
or CENTRAL WASHINGTON:
Take the eastbound Amtrak Empire Builder to Chicago, Illinois. That train is scheduled to arrive into Chicago at 3:55 PM.
From there you would take the westbound Amtrak Southwest Chief. But since the Southwest Chief departs almost 24 hours later
at 3:15 PM, plan to spend an evening in Chicago touring the city.
The westbound Amtrak Southwest Chief is scheduled to arrive into La Plata, Missouri, at 8:06 PM, about a 5 hours rail journey
from Chicago when the train is running on schedule. A free hotel shuttle will transport you to the comfort of your
room at The Depot Inn & Suites from the La Plata Amtrak Station. There is no need to worry if your train is running late.
As long as the hotel knows you are arriving by Amtrak, they will be there to pick you up when the train arrives.
