May the beauty of Christmas be with you now and all through the New Year.
The California Zephyr One of the last big attempts to lure passengers to trains in post-war America was the 1949 inauguration of the California Zephyr between Chicago and San Francisco. Three railroads, the Burlington, the Rio Grande and the Western Pacific, worked together for their travelers to view the most scenic parts of the route during the daytime, including Colorado's Glenwood Canyon, where the idea of the dome car was conceived. The CZ, which affectionately became known as the Silver Lady, regularly carried five dome cars. The on-board hostess, called the Zephyrette, visited each passenger to make dinner reservations in the dining car. Advertisements enticed passengers to "Take the time to live a little--travel by train." A set of Rio Grande's F-3s lead the famous train through Crescent, Colorado, wishing you a very happy holiday.
