Remarks & Notes 
Dramatic late summer monsoons dot the sky as Amtrak's Southwest Chief slides past the west end of Chapelle siding. Amtrak's 21st century rolling stock contrasts starkly with the classic Santa Fe route and similarly classic semaphore signals, leaving one yearning for the years of Covered Wagons and Warbonnnets. These hallmarks of railroad history will soon fade away at the persistent advances of the unstoppable tide of change.
