Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Nice photo. Added to
Thanks for posting these!
Thanks! Keep checking back, we're going to be putting up quite a few items over the next week or two.
What a beautiful photo! Thank you very much!
Just love these amazing Zephyr trains. Wish one could still ride them. (BTW I noticed that the Wikipedia article on the Denver Zephyr caries the same photo with only the information 'promotional photo': en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denver_Zephyr)
If you click on that image, you'll see the credit back to here.
What a great railroad Every Where West
As a Q fan I just have to love this picture. If this is the Silver Flash at the rear, this must be consist 9906, introduced in the autumn of 1936. The total consist was: 9906A Silver King (motor) - 9906B Silver Queen (motor) - 950 Silver Courier (train power, RPO, storage mail) - 980 Silver Lining (baggage, dormitory cocktail lounge) - 4631 Silver City (chair car) - 4632 Silver Lake (chair car) 152 Silver Grill (dining car) - 410 Silver State (sleeping car) - 411 Silver Tip (sleeping car) - 412 Silver Arrow (sleeping car) - 440 Silver Sides (sleeping car) - 230 Silver Flash (parlor, lounge, observation car).
Strangely enough this picture isn't in "Burlington Route Passenger Trains, vol. 1 by John F. Strauss Jr. Maybe he just missed it.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/cklx] Thanks for your interest! You'll definitely want to check out our Railroads collection when you have a chance. Just this past month we digitized 23 photographs, most of them being broadsides of several of the cars from the 9906 and 9907 consists, which were transferred to the Texas Zephyr back in 1957!
