Review of California Zephyr The Original Dream Train DVD

Take a ride on the California Zephyr, the “Silver Lady”, the epitome of streamlined passenger train luxury. This footage from the late 1960s takes you from Oakland by the San Francisco Bay eastward toward Chicago. Three rail lines combined efforts to create this trans-continental “rail cruise”- the Western Pacific, The Denver and Rio Grande Western and finally from Denver to Chicago the Burlington Route. This DVD concentrates on the most scenic portion of the trip from the Pacific over the Rocky Mountains, but takes you all the way to Chicago. See the views from the Vista Domes as though you were on the train snaking up the Feather River Canyon, cresting Soldier Summit in Utah or following the Colorado River up toward the top of the Rockies. Relive the dream of the streamliner they said could never die. 42 min, Filmed by Alva Morrison
