The Texas Chief Santa Fe trains 15 & 16 were named passenger trains of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Its route ran from Chicago, Illinois, to Galveston, Texas. The Texas Chief was inaugurated as a coach and Pullman train in 1939.

The Texas Chief lasted through the Amtrak takeover in 1971. In 1974, Amtrak was forced by Santa Fe to rename the train due to declining standards that did not meet Santa Fe Chief standards. Amtrak renamed the train the Lone Star. Amtrak's Lone Star was discontinued on October 9, 1979.
