Amtrak Missouri River Breakfast Menu

Although Howard Fogg’s painting celebrates the Union Pacific’s first crossing of the Missouri River, it is much less of an advertisement for that railroad than yesterday’s (and much less likely to invite invidious comparisons between Amtrak and its predecessors). Like yesterday’s, this one is for breakfast on the Travelers Rest car, presumably on the San Francisco Zephyr.

The menu itself offers eight “club breakfasts,” ranging from juice, cereal, bread, and beverage for $1.40 (about $8.50 in today’s dollars) to poached eggs on an English muffin with ham, bacon or sausage; juice, bread, and beverage for $2.50 (about $15 today). There is also a brief a la carte menu with fruit, cereal, bread, and beverages and three children’s meals.
