For many years, the Super Chief and El Capitan were two of the finest passenger trains operated by the Santa Fe. The Super Chief was Americas first-ever diesel powered all-Pullman sleeping car train whisking passengers between Los Angeles and Chicago in under 48 hours, while the El Capitan was the only all-coach train to operate between the two cities using the same fast schedule as the Super Chief. Except for the busy summer months, Santa Fe combined the two trains together in their last 12 years of operation under Santa Fe's control. In 1971, Amtrak took over and tried their best to continue running the Super Chief/El Capitan utilizing Santa Fe's high standards.

An interesting video on passenger service, primarily most of this video is in California under the Amtrak name. Overall.... a good video. One disappointment.... it is not long enough. So much more could have been in a video on the 2 in 1 train... The Super Chief and the El Capitan.
