I can’t imagine wanting to ride the train from Cheyenne to Pueblo.  :-\
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I would like to be able to ride the train from DFW to Denver. There used to be passenger service before Amtrak took over. It was called the Texas Zephyr.

A view of cornfields and low brush? I think not. While I appreciate your enthusiasm I'm beginning to think you have a bit of a fixation.

I've rode the California Zephyr from Denver to BFE Nevada before. Really beautiful and a fun way to travel.

I'm sure the anti-pipeline folks are gearing up to stop this, because pollution, environment, climate change, sacred Indian sites, etc, right?

I've never been on a train.  I've always wanted to go across the country in one.  It's one of those things I could've done but didn't.  :-\  It's been a while but the last time I looked into it Amtrak did away with the dining cars and all you get is snacks.  That was a few years ago.  Perhaps it was a temporary thing.  I have yet to check again.  If anybody here has traveled as such, I'd appreciate it if you told me what your experience was.  :)

I've heard trains in Canada are much nicer, a trip across Canada would be beautiful

I'd love to do that.  However, I'd like to see the good old U.S.A. first.

As long as they let you off east of the Mississippi?
Are we having fun yet?

Ride the Dog from Pittsburgh to LA and write a book about the experience. It will be an interesting tale.

Nope. I've lifted my self imposed, albeit irrational, restriction and expanded my horizons.  Now only Utah, Nevada, and California are off limits.  Oh, also Alaska and Hawaii.  I don't think you can go to Hawaii on a train anyway.  ;)
