Hope all good things are headed your way at Christmas and always!

Additional Verse:

Empire Builder James J. Hill built the northernmost railroad across America from St. Paul to Seattle, and because of his determination he was called "Empire Builder." In 1929 his Great Northern Railway inaugurated its Empire Builder train on a 63-hour schedule between Chicago and Seattle through seven states. In 1947 it upgraded the train with new diesels and streamlined cars on a 45-hour schedule. Only 55 miles of Mr. Hill's Great Northern were above 4,000 feet elevation. Here we see westbound No. 1 descending the railway's easy passage over the 5,213-foot Continental Divide summit on the southern edge of Glacier Park in the Montana Rockies. The railway thought it was time for gaiety and beauty after the ubiquitous olive colors of World War II, and believed its new Empire Builder had those qualities, which we hope will brighten your holidays as well.
