Historical Research on Transcontinental Railroad trip in the late 1890's

From: Maphillinn@aol.com

I'm writing a novel that includes a trip on the transcontinental railroad (from San Francisco to Cheyenne) in the late 1890s, and I need as detailed information as I can get on what the trip would have been like in terms of the train itself and the sights. I've found your site quite helpful; however, the articles you have on travel pertain to the 1860s to early 1880s. Any suggestions on further sources of information? ...
