Southwest Limited route guide, 1974.

Multicolor printed paper route guide issued in May 1974 for the daily Southwest Limited (Chicago-Los Angeles). Guide offers brief descriptions of cities and towns along the route, as well as a fold-out map. From the Ann Owens Collection. When Amtrak took over this route from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway in 1971, it retained the original Super Chief name. In 1974, Amtrak rebranded it as the Southwest Limited; ten years later, the train gained its current name, the Southwest Chief.
