Other than a 1957 calendar, which I hope to eventually get to, and a few other tiny items, this will pretty finish off my collection of Burlington paper memorabilia. Of course, I may end up acquiring more.
Here’s a 1968 timetable for Aurora commuter train service. The Burlington offered 25 trains each weekday each way between Aurora and Chicago.
Here’s a meal check from the California Zephyr. As I’ve noted before, I suspect the tradition of having passengers write their own orders began when many waiters were not expected to be literate.
Here’s a similar meal check for members of the armed services or other government employees “where settlement is made by government meal ticket or other authorized equivalent.” I’m not sure why government employees needed their own meal checks, but perhaps it made accounting easier for the railroad.
