It’s 1947, and the newly streamlined Empire Builder no longer stops at Glacier Park on its 45-hour journey across the Northwest. Instead, the revived Oriental Limited is the train to use by passengers wanting to visit the park. The S-2 steam locomotive shown in this brochure will soon be replaced by Diesels, but passengers to Glacier will continue to ride heavyweight cars until 1951.

Rather than ghastly orange or patriotic blue, this brochure uses green as a highlight color, with brown instead of black serving as the main color. These choices seem much more appropriate when advertising a forested wilderness like Glacier Park.
