The Colorado Room

Like the California Zephyr‘s observation cars, the lounge under the Denver Zephyr‘s last dome, known as the “Colorado Room,” had a linoleum carving by Pierre Bourdelle and a mural by Russell Patterson. Patterson also did murals in the parlor portion of the car in front of the dome, and the observation portion behind the dome.

The Silver Chateau is the tail car on this Denver Zephyr. Click image for a larger view.

The beverage menu for the Colorado Room had one of the wildflower paintings on its cover. This particular one has the columbine and deer vine painting, but I’ve also seen one with the wild rose and lupin painting.
