This undated photo provided by Amtrak shows passengers relaxing in a lounge car aboard the California Zephyr, which runs between Emeryville, Calif., and Reno, Nev. The 236-mile journey 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) less
