Traveler's Notes . . .

May 04, 1997

Los Angeles is scheduled to lose its thrice-weekly Amtrak service to Las Vegas on Thursday, when the Desert Wind makes its last run. Meanwhile, the California Zephyr route between San Francisco and Chicago is scheduled to increase from four times a week to daily as of May 11. . . .

Checks in the old 1994 design will continue to be honored.
