The illustrator of these brochures included maps that showed daytime as white graying into nighttime black. But, curiously, the illustrator forgot to show the second night in this brochure.
The eastbound Empire Builder has just left East Glacier and it headed across the Montana prairie. The Glacier Park Hotel, built by the Great Northern Railway in 1913, is barely visible in this photo above the last few cars on the train.
