Buffalo Hunt 1971 Dinner Menu

Although Union Pacific “rebooted” its color wrap-around menu series with new photographs in 1970, it continued to use the Howard Fogg centennial menus. This menu is dated April, 1971, the last month before Amtrak took over. Although Fogg did sixteen paintings for UP’s Golden Spike centennial, I’ve only seen six of them on its dinner menus: the Last Spike, the Missouri River bridge, the Columbia River, container trains, a domeliner, and this one, the buffalo hunt.

Inside is a typical menu for its era, with four table d’hôte entrées (trout, turkey, veal, and sirloin steak), three lower-priced “specialties” (chopped beef steak, club sandwich, and chef’s salad), and no entrées on the a la carte menu (unless you count a couple of salads).
