Air-Conditioned NCL Stationery

This piece of on-board stationery advertises “the air-conditioned North Coast Limited” with the added statement, “For 1000 miles-companion of mountains.” While Great Northern would later advertise that the Great Domed Empire Builder passed “more scenic miles,” Northern Pacific fans would be quick to point out that the NP had to cross several more mountain ranges and spent more time in the mountains than the GN. Of course, that also meant that NP locomotives had to pull up more grades and around more curves than the GN.

The NP logo with the “Yellowstone Park Line” subhead is also notable for simply reading “Northern Pacific.” This logo would be replaced by “Northern Pacific Railway” in the streamlined era.
