I would go with the California Zephyr over Greyhound. Greyhounds can be scary and are pretty cramped spaces for long distances. I have rode the Zephyr several times from Chicago to central Iowa. About a 6 hour trip. There is plenty of room to walk around. There is a dining car, a bar car and a glass top observation car. They also show movies after dark in the observation car. I think it would be a great way to see a lot of different scenery on the way from Cali.

The trip to Omaha is probably close to 42 hours. I think there is also a couple hour layover in Denver while they refuel the train.

Wikipedia has a good article on the Zephyr. And Amtrak has a PDF Route guide at this link. http://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer?c=Page&pagename=am%2FLayout&p=1237405732511&cid=1241337978894
