Hi Barry,
Currently a Chimera session just includes the model names, which are  
often the names of the files they were opened from, but not the entire  
paths to those files.  These names are listed in the Model Panel  
(Favorites... Model Panel).

If you had just opened the file in the current session, the entire  
pathname is remembered and can be viewed in the Model Panel - click  
the Model Panel's "Configure..." button, go to the Columns section,  
check "Input File."  Although sessions currently do not retain this  
information, your question has brought up the point that they probably  
should.  We will put that improvement on the "to do" list.
