The last scheduled passenger service was the daily Santa Fe Denver-La Junta train in each direction. It lasted until Amtrak came in. In better days it carried a Los Angeles-Denver through sleeper (6-6-4 Valley series) connecting with 19/20 The Chief at La Junta.

I had understood when the coal was rolling over the Joint Line there was no capacity for a passenger train, but now...

In any event, why not do what Santa Fe did in better days for the trains that did not connect with the one passenger train: run a bus? Don't put the pax on a regular TNM&O/Greyhound on their schedule but run a dedicated connection on Amtrak's schedule.
