This undated image provided by Amtrak shows the California Zephyr train at the Emeryville Station 11 miles east of San Francisco, en route to Reno, Nev., a 236-mile journey that offers beautiful views as well as history. It crosses the Sierra Nevada mountain range and follows the same course as the historic Transcontinental Railroad, a 19th century engineering feat that bolstered the nation’s western expansion. The Zephyr’s ultimate destination is Chicago, a 51-hour trip from Emeryville. (AP Photo/Amtrak/Phil Gosney)
