COLA 1959 Along the Way

Nine years after the 48-page 1950 Along the Union Pacific booklet, UP published this brief (effectively six 4″x9″ panels printed back to back) brochure as the along-the-way guide for the City of Los Angeles. This brochure apparently also served as a “welcome aboard” brochure for passengers on the train.

In the late 1950s and 1960s, UP published similar brochures for the City of Portland, City of St. Louis, City of Denver, and presumably City of San Francisco. These must have completely replaced the full, 48-page “along the Union Pacific” booklets as I can’t find any of those dated later than 1953.
