One advantage of the Great Northern’s tiny brochures was that travelers could pick the destinations that interested them instead of picking up a “Go East” brochure and finding that only a quarter of the brochure actually dealt with eastern destinations. Prospective Great Northern passengers interested in Glacier Park could take this little brochure, filled with eleven enticing color photos, two color drawings, and a map of the park.

Fishing, hiking, boating, and Glacier Park’s famous red jammer tour buses are all featured in the brochure. The 1960 brochure also pictures three of the Glacier Park hotels that were then owned by the Great Northern. At the end of the 1960 season, the railway sold the hotels, but fortunately successor operators have done a good job of managing the hotels and remembering their heritage.
