From Indian Trails to Steel Rails

From Wagon Wheels to Stainless Steel provided a history and along-the-way guide to the Burlington’s Chicago-Denver corridor. This similarly titled booklet does the same for the railroad’s Kansas City-Omaha-Lincoln route. Both of these booklets were printed in 1945.

The Kansas City-Lincoln route was the original route of the first Zephyr. As noted yesterday, by 1940 the route was covered by the Silver Streak Zephyr. As pictured on the cover of this booklet, that train continued to connect these cities in 1945.
