This is the first book devoted to a single passenger train route in North America to be published in full color. And what a route it is! A route steeped in history, romance, and the awesome scenery of the Rocky Mountains. The scenic richness inspired the officials of 3 railroads--the Burlington, Rio Grande, and Western Pacific--to introduce a new type of train after WWII. It was a long distance train scheduled to pass through the magnificent areas during daylight and it was called the 'California Zephyr.' This book tells the story of the 'California Zephyr,' its successor the 'Rio Grande Zephyr,' and the Superliner cars of today--Amtrak's new 'California Zephyr.'
