Burlington's Zephyrs
By Karl R. Zimmermann   Burlington's Zephyr's

This authoritative, illustrated 128 page-hardcover history of the Zephyr fleet examines the trains, their motive power and landmark streamlined designs, rolling stock (including the Vista-Dome, generally considered the first successful dome car), and services. A total of 75 black and white archival images and 50 period color photographs depict Zephyrs along routes throughout the Midwest, Rocky Mountains, Pacific Coast, and Texas, as well as Burlington uniforms, dinnerware, stations and terminals, and interior views of cars. In the process, the book provides a dramatic visual account of train travel’s decline throughout the century. Also featured are period advertisements, route maps, timetables and menus. 8 1/2 x 11".
