RE: Durango CO to Omaha NE - Train Feedback?
I'm not sure if this helps, but many years ago I did a RT from Lincoln, NE to Denver. The scenery for the most part is nothing to speak of, but when you do leave Nebraska...which, granted, is opposite from the way you'll be travelling, you get confused about when the plains end and when the mountains begin....You become unsure if you're seeing clouds or seeing the tops of mtns, which is acutally pretty cool....
The seats on Amtrak coach are pretty comfortable, and I remember just sleeping on them. The food is, well, train food, which is, I think, a step up from airline fare.
Also, you should be aware the the US doesn't adequately fund the rail system here....you should be prepared for delays...esp. on a route like that, which isn't one of the major ones (i.e. the northeast corridor from Boston to DC.)
Have a good trip.
