CB&Q February, 1970 Breakfast Menu

The Burlington Northern merger was still a month away when this menu was printed, but the Cascade green border around the edge of the menu was probably in anticipation of that merger. The merger was supposed to have taken place in 1969 but for a last-minute delay, so CB&Q had painted a few locomotives and GN had painted a few passenger cars in this color well before “M day,” which was March 3, 1970.

The menu is otherwise similar to the 1955 breakfast menu shown here last week. Prices are higher, of course, and there are actually a few items on this menu not available in 1955, including French toast and baked apple.
