There was a new train listed in the June 15, 1976, Amtrak timetable – trains 781 and 782, the Las Vegas Limited. This train departed Los Angeles at 1:30 pm on Fridays, and returned on Sundays (departing Las Vegas at 2:00 pm). On Friday, May 21, 1976, weeks before the new timetable went into effect, the inaugural run of train 782 departs Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal’s Track 7 to head east on Santa Fe’s Second District, stopping in Pasadena, Pomona, San Bernardino and Barstow, with an arrival in Las Vegas, Nevada, at 8:55 pm. Train 782 departed Los Angeles behind a quartet of E-Units, recently bumped from San Diegan service by newly delivered F40PHs, is the power for this train. (The cars for this train may have also been freed up from San Diegan service following the delivery of Amfleet cars.) On this day, AMTK E9A 417 (ex-Union Pacific 912), E8B 451 (ex-AMTK 267, PC 4052, nee-NYC 4052), E8B 452 (ex-AMTK 278, PC 4058, nee-NYC 4058) and E9A 416 (ex-UP 911) give this train a classic look. Unfortunately, after just three short months, low ridership caused the Las Vegas Limited to be cancelled.
