Re: Nebraska Zephyr Excursion

As VegasMan See Profile pointed out, the webpage that I referenced in my original post has been updated to show the prices, and when they go on sale.

I knew this was not going to be a cheep Excursion, but I did not think it would be that much.

To compare, I went to Amtrak's page, and looked up a one-way ticket between Chicago and Galesburg on the Illinois Zephyr route (which is the same route the Nebraska Zephyr is taking). The cost of that ticket is $27.00 for coach class. So, this trip is $102 more then that one way.

While you do get meal service in the Dining Car "Ceres" (which, I'm hoping for the price is included), I know I cannot see paying that kind of price. Sure, it would be a historic ride, but not for that kind of cash.

And, it's also so much more expensive than regular Amtrak because it's 100% private, and not subsidized by several levels of government support.
