The Milwaukee Journal photo above was taken during the blizzard of January 29, 1947. The photo is reproduced here from the book Milwaukee Road Remembered, Jim Scribbins.
The photo below is from a promotional flyer in my private collection. It is caption:
“At the dawn of a New Year, a dazzling winter wonderland unfolds for passengers on the Vista-Dome California Zephyr, en route to California via Rio Grande’s scenic main line through the Rockies.”
The same dazzling winter wonderland unfolds for today’s passengers on the Amtrak California Zephyr.
