Hope you're on track for a joyous Holiday Season!
Leaving Denver at Dusk During the joyous Christmas season, railroads were often called upon to operate extra trains to accommodate more passengers and mail, and the 9,040-mile Burlington Route was up to the task. In 1930 the Baldwin Locomotive Works built a dozen high-stepping 4-6-4 Hudsons for the Burlington with 78-inch drivers. The 3000-series racehorses were placed in service between Chicago and Denver on such trains as the Aristocrat, the Blackhawk, and the Exposition Flyer, and they frequently handled Zephyrs up to 95 mph until they were replaced by diesels in the 1940s. Getting underway out of Denver is the 3003 carrying green signals, which indicate there are more sections of train coming behind.
