Sunset Limited (Los Angeles - Miami, currently Orlando) rerouted from a secondary line to a main line between Tucson and Yuma because Union Pacific Railroad (UP) abandoned the second line.  Therefore, Amtrak no longer served directly Phoenix.  Also Coolidge and Tempe stations located between Tucson and Phoenix were cut.  The last trains served Phoenix on May 28, 1996.  In the spring 2001 Maricopa station opened on the new route between Tucson and Yuma.
