Portland Rose Bridge Score Pad

This score pad uses the slogan, “A triumph of train comfort,” suggesting that UP’s marketing department didn’t alway keep its slogans straight. It probably dates from the early 1950s, as the size and design is identical to the Great Northern score pad from that era. The only differences are the parts relating to the individual railroads and trains.

Yesterday I showed a postcard showing the interior of the Portland Rose dining car that I downloaded from Wikimedia. For the sake of completeness, here is another Wikimedia card, no doubt from the same ebay dealer, showing the interior of the Portland Rose club car, complete with painted roses on the walls and roses woven into the carpet and the upholstery of at least one chair.
