The Pioneer Zephyr

Swift, stylish and so sophisticated, the Burlington Railroad's Pioneer Zephyr was a 104-ton, three-car streamlined speedster, setting a record of 13 hours, four minutes on the 1,015-mile run between Denver and Chicago. This 128-page, 8-1/2x11" softcover book details the entire history of the Pioneer Zephyr, including its rebuilding and installation in 1997-98 in Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.

Price: $29.95
