Prototype Information:

When Amtrak took over the Santa Fe’s “Super Chief” train, it originally retained the name of the classic silver streamlined service. In 1974, the name was changed from “Super Chief” to “Southwest Limited”, a name it retained for 10 years before becoming the “Southwest Chief”.

Like the Super Chief, the Southwest Limited was made up of a mixture of ACF, Pullman and Budd-built stainless steel cars, the same basic consist as the original Santa Fe Train. Like the Santa Fe had done before it, Amtrak combined the ex-Super Chief and ex-El Capitan Hi-level cars in its Southwest Limited service, the single-level cars being used as the 1st class portion of the consist.

Motive Power:

The then-new EMD SDP40F was a prime candidate for use on the new Amtrak trains, replacing old Santa Fe E and F-units with newer and more recently built equipment. The SDP40F, despite being based off the core SD40-2 chassis, was geared for a higher maximum speed and given a passenger style full-width cab and body. The SDP40F’s were used in multiple phases but lasted in Amtrak Service roughly as long as the “Southwest Limited” name, being transferred over primarily to freight service in 1985.


Passenger Car Features:
  • Brand new paint and numbering for the Santa Fe Cars to represent their post-1974 appearance.
  • Two newly tooled cars, never before done with the Super Chief: The Budd Pine Series 10-6 sleeper and the Pullman 11-Double Bedroom sleeper!
  • Like the prototype, this 1st class train can be combined with the Amtrak Phase I El Capitan to create a full 18 car consist with both coach and 1st class accomodations.
  • Each car is equipped with low flange wheels, KATO magnetic knuckle couplers and shock absorber construction for smooth and reliable operation.
  • Ideal for operating with Phase I EMD SDP40F locomotives
  • Interior of cars can be lighted with optional installation of #11-211/212 Version 2 Interior Light Kit with White LED.
